We Hear: Staffing Changes at Factory Design Labs

Factory DesignWe have yet to receive an official statement from the agency after multiple requests, but we can confirm that some staffing changes have occurred at Denver-based Factory Design Labs.

The most visible move comes atop the shop: Scott Mellin, who until recently served as CEO, now occupies the chief brand officer role. Agency founder Jonas Tempel has stepped in to assume the chief position moving forward; he served as both CEO and creative director for several years before launching a separate project called Beatport, and he has held the Chairman/Special Projects title since 2010.

We hear that other staffers are no longer with Factory’s Denver office, but we do not have concrete details at the moment.

Factory Design Labs Picks Up Creative Duties for Callaway

Well, that was fast. Just two weeks after we reported that San Francisco agency Eleven and Callaway Golf ended their four-year relationship, we’ve received the news that Denver-based Factory Design Labs has been named the new creative AOR for the brand. Could we call this a score for Blake Ebel, the former Euro RSCG Chicago CCO who left to take on the same post at FDL almost a year ago?

Anyhow, it’s not the most irrational move for Callaway seeing as Factory Design Labs has already served as its digital agency of record. Now, the shop’s just responsible for all strategy, advertising, creative and production for the brand. FDL’s CEO Scott Mellin says in a statement, “Extending our relationship with Callaway Golf to include all advertising in addition to digital is a great honor. One that we take with a great deal of respect and responsibility.  Our teams have proven their knowledge of the business and the ability to execute.”
