Montague, who served as SVP, group managing director and worked on CRM and multi-channel efforts on Volkswagen while at Draft (for just over a year), will lead marketing efforts for Kaiser Permanente and Kraft at Digitas. As for Skinner, who was SVP, global director of strategic planning at Draft on SC Johnson (RIP), the exec will work across all accounts as planning lead.

Meanwhile on the Digitas Boston front, the agency has brought on Robert Guay as SVP of marketing on the Aflac account. Guay previously worked at Fallon as group account director for, mm, nine months give or take and handled digital strategy on Cadillac.

Some of Digitas Chicago’s most notable accounts include MillerCoors, Kraft and Whirlpool.
