Detweiler Assumes CCO Post at Grey SF

detweiler1We’ve got the Grey double-whammy today as the agency, fresh off of winning the Papa John’s biz, has now also welcomed Curt Detweiler as chief creative officer of its San Francisco office. And so, thus ends Detweiler’s brief spell at Arnold SF, where he apparently landed just nine months ago to serve as EVP/ECD/managing director. Whatever the case, it appears the dust has settled on his next gig, as he now takes over as CCO of the 75-person-strong Grey SF, where he will partner with the agency’s president, Milan Martin, who joined at the end of last summer.

Detweiler’s new boss, Grey North America CEO Michael Houston, says in a statement, “Curt is going to be an outstanding partner to Milan as Grey San Francisco’s resurgence and rapid growth continues under his leadership. Curt’s creative track-record on big brands and big clients in every channel, across Europe, Asia and the United States at many of the finest agencies, underscores the aggressive plans we have for Grey on the West Coast.”

To refresh your memory of Detweiler’s resume, prior to Arnold, the creative vet spent a few years as EVP/ECD at McCann SF and served in the senior creative level at the likes of Ground Zero and TBWA\Chiat\Day New York and L.A. during his career. The Grey SF top creative post (which was ECD at the time) was previously held by Jack Fund, who left the agency last fall.

Martin Assumes President Post at Grey SF

Let’s shift gears on the Grey front for a moment from the usual New York happenings to San Francisco as the agency has welcomed Milan Martin as president of its Bay Area branch. Martin joins Grey SF after spending nearly three years as managing director/chief strategist at Anthem Worldwide. Prior to Anthem, the exec had a four-year stint at Gyro, where he last served as president of its New York office. During his career, Martin also spent a decade at both the New York and London offices of Ogilvy, where he served as account director and led brand management for the likes of IBM, Gillette, AT&T, Anheuser-Busch and Virgin.

Martin, who will lead a staff of 50 at Grey SF, replaces Brad Fogel, who left the agency on his own a couple of months ago and now serves as COO for Innocean USA.
