Lynn, Himmelsbach Indeed Land at IPG Mediabrands, Which Just Launched Publishing Unit

Another day, another IPG memo obtained. One thing we can confirm according the note sent to staff this morning from Jacki Kelley, North American CEO/president, global clients for IPG Mediabrands, is that the agency has welcomed Teddy Lynn and Mark Himmelsbach to the fold.

As our ever-reliable tipsters hinted at a couple of weeks ago, the pair, who recently left BBDO NY, will be working together once again as they’re now serving as CCO and COO, respectively, of a new Mediabrands unit called Mediabrands Publishing. This actually marks Lynn’s second stint within the IPG umbrella as he last served as ECD/content & experiences at UM for nearly three before joining BBDO. During their time at the latter agency, Lynn and Himmelsbach held the titles of EVP/director of content and EVP/director of digital strategy, North America, respectively.

Anyhow, you can read Kelley’s memo after the jump to explain what Mediabrands Publishing entails.

Himmelsbach, Lynn Leaving BBDO

Sources in the know have confirmed that Mark Himmselbach and Teddy Lynn will be leaving BBDO. The agency has declined to comment on the matter, but despite what tipsters are saying, our sources tell us that the pair is NOT starting their own independent agency venture though they will be working together in some capacity. Both Himmelsbach and Lynn worked out of BBDO’s New York hub, with the former serving as EVP/director of digital strategy, North America for the last two years while the latter held the title of EVP/director of content.

From what we’ve been told, this will be their last week at BBDO. Prior to their most recent gigs, Himmelsbach worked at fellow Omnicom agency PHD while Lynn held content roles at the likes of UM and Arnold.
