Jensen Joins Hill Holliday as CCO

Last night, the office of Modernista!–which revamped its executive team after a troubled 2010–got word that Lance Jensen, who co-founded the agency back in 2000, is leaving for Hill Holliday to serve as said shop’s chief creative officer. Jensen perhaps is most noted for his work prior to Modernista, specifically the Volkswagen “Drivers Wanted” campaign that was created while he was at Arnold in 1998.

Mike Sheehan, chief exec at fellow Boston-based Hill Holliday, says in a statement, “Over the course of his career, Lance has demonstrated the rare ability to not only create and execute truly resonant work in his own right, but to lead others in the same endeavor. His vision for great work spans every conceivable media and technology, which will invariably help Hill Holliday and our clients continue to grow in the coming years. His body of work is enviable, his talent and taste levels are impeccable, and he’s a genuine and empathetic leader.”

Hill Holliday’s current clients include Dunkin Donuts, Liberty Mutual and Bank of America.
