Here’s the Memo Regarding Moran’s Arrival at Havas NY

Well, as you may have heard, Darren Moran has officially joined Havas Worldwide’s New York office as its new chief creative officer. Once again, we’ve obtained a memo (confirmed legit), this time sent from Havas global president Andrew Benett (who also doubles as NY CEO) to staff just a couple of hours ago regarding Moran’s arrival. The newly minted CCO most recently spent his second tour of duty at BBDO New York, which he rejoined just last fall as executive creative director. During his career, the creative exec also served as EVP/chief creative officer at Draftfcb NY.

Anyhow, feel free to check out Benett’s memo, which also mentions a few other key leadership notes, in full after the jump.

Wednesday Odds and Ends

-We’ve inquired about this a couple of weeks ago, but que sera sera, a trade you know well has confirmed that Matt Ryan, co-chair of Havas New York who joined the agency from sibling Arnold when it was still Euro RSCG back in 2008, is out and that global lead Andrew Benett will take on the CEO role of said office. Yeah, we inquired for comment, but nothing from Havas’s end as of yet. Wonder why. link

-And now, we get insecure thanks to a Mercedes-Benz ad aimed at the South African market from Net#work BBDO (above). Check out credits and behind-the-scenes clip after the jump.

-Current Saatchi & Saatchi Greater China president/COO Michael Lee has been promoted to CEO at the agency.

-In other Rosetta news, the Publicis Groupe-owned agency has hired Mindshare alum Jeff Thaler as managing partner/program management officer.

-Atlanta-based agency Ames Scullin O’Haire has launched its internal production studio, ASO Digital Films. It would help if we could actually download the digital films promoting the launch, but guess we can do with this for now. link

-St. Louis-based experiential marketing agency Switch has promoted Scott Burns to the newly created ECD role.

-And so, it continues. Caesars has dropped Paula Deen and so has Walmart.

Steve Doppelt Heading to Euro

After spending over four years as group creative director at Omnicom’s New York-based unit Merkley + Partners, Steve Doppelt is heading to Euro RSCG’s Big Apple branch according to sources familiar with the matter. From what we hear, Doppelt is joining up as ECD on the latter agency’s famed Dos Equis account, though his exact title and start date haven’t been confirmed as of yet. We’ve been told by our sources that Doppelt’s hiring had a little something to do with the fact that since Lee Garfinkel took on a co-chairman role alongside Matt Ryan at Euro NY at the beginning of the year, the former has been contacted by people who have worked with him in the past.

Anyhow, during his time at Merkley, Doppelt served as creative lead on accounts including Arby’s, Dave & Buster’s and Ad Council. Prior to Merkley, Doppelt spent four years as a CD at Kirshenbaum Bond Senecal + Partners, working on business including Mohegan Sun and Verizon. His resume also counts creative stints at Publicis, the now-defunct Cliff Freeman & Partners and Lowe.
