Michael Carey Assumes Top Marketing Post at McCann West

McCann West has carved out a new position for one Michael Carey, who joins the agency as SVP, director of marketing. Carey, who will lead growth strategy and marketing in both McCann LA and San Fran, arrives from Arnold Boston, where he spent a dozen years and most recently served as SVP, director of brand experience for clients including McDonald’s, Carnival Cruises, Volvo, Ocean Spray, New Balance and Progressive. While at Arnold, Carey pulled double-duty as an executive member of the Arnold general agency pitch team.

The newest McCann exec, who bears a slight resemblance to The Shield‘s Michael Chiklis, will be based in McCann SF and officially assume his post on April 4. He will then jointly report to SF GM Bob Ellis and LA president Cathy Saidiner.
