CP+B Makes Some Management Moves

steveerich1Crispin Porter + Bogusky is making some management shifts at the dawn of 2014. Among the moves the Boulder-based, MDC-owned agency is the promotion of 10-year vet Steve Erich to president. In addition to Erich (pictured), who most recently served as partner/managing director at CP+B, the agency has also appointed Mike Saunter, a Warner Music/EMI alum, to chief operating officer while also moving one of its four original partners, Jeff Steinhour,  to the role of vice-chairman.

As for new prez Erich, after joining CP+B in 2004 to help relaunch the Burger King biz, the exec moved up the ladder to partner in 2008 and subsequently was appointed managing director two years ago. CP+B CEO Andrew Keller says in a statement, “Steve is a rare combination of incredible intelligence, reliability and great market knowledge with a proven ability to lead, unify and inspire both his team and our clients. Mike’s financial expertise and his experience in the music industry, a creative industry that is overflowing with opportunities yet in the midst of profound changes – as is our industry, will be invaluable to us. And Jeff is a key to continuing our culture, what makes us great and what continues to be the heartbeat of CP+B.”

CP+B Promotes Erich to MD

Crispin Porter + Bogusky has promoted Steve Erich to managing director. You might remember Erich from four years ago when he was named a partner/group account director at the agency.  Anyhow, during his eight year stint at CP+B,which saw him crisscross the Atlantic to establish the agency’s European client services, Erich helped oversee accounts including American Express, Old Navy, MetLife and Kraft and also aided in the re-launch Burger King in the US.

Prior to Crispin, Erich worked on the account side at the likes of TBWA\Chiat\Day, what was then VitroRobertson as well as the Martin Agency. From what we’ve been told, the managing director post at CP+B’s HQ is “basically a new position.”
