This morning we can confirm that Chief Creative Officer Calle Sjoenell will soon leave Ogilvy New York to return to his native Sweden.
Sjoenell spent five years at BBH, reaching the deputy CCO level before joining Ogilvy in 2012. During his more than two years at Ogilvy New York, he helped produce work for clients ranging from Caterpillar, Norelco, Phillips and Fanta to, most recently, Coca-Cola and Depend.
His brother Pelle also currently serves as ECD at BBH LA.
While the internal Ogilvy memo doesn’t give us much in the way of details, the Swedish magazine Resume reports that Sjoenell will soon be “home after eight years in the United States” and that he has accepted the role of Creative Director at Lowe Brindfors. He will replace Rickard Villard, who left the agency in May.
