Well, looks like Neilan Tyree’s somewhat brief run at David&Goliath has come to an end as the agency’s chief marketing officer/new business head has been replaced by Claudia Caplan, who previously had two stints at Mendelsohn Zien, first as a CD/partner for several years before returning as CMO. During her ad career, Caplan worked on accounts including BMW, Fox Digital Entertainment, Peter Pan Peanut Butter and Carl’s Jr.
Joining Caplan at D&G is Brian Dunbar, who’ll take on the post of managing partner, director of client services. Dunbar spent 10 years at DDB, eventually moving up to group account director before joining Goodby, Silverstein & Partners as associate partner/GAD from 2000-2008. While there, Dunbar led the development of campaigns for clients including Saturn, E*Trade, eBay, Adobe and Doritos.
