twist imageToronto digital marketing agency Twist Image signed Jon Finkelstein as its new ECD. Finklestein, who most recently served as SVP/ECD at the BBDO “sibling agency” Proximity Canada, replaces Virginia Magaletta, who held the position for more than six years.

Prior to joining Proximity, Finklestein spent nine years as a partner and creative lead at Toronto’s Grip Limited; he also served as CD at henderson bas after starting his career as ACD at ICD and Ogilvy, where he worked on IBM, Amex and Kodak.

You may recall that Twist Image sold to WPP in May; at the time, President Mitch Joel described the move as “a bigger bet.”

“Branding, marketing and entertainment company” Omelet — which recently named  Shannon McGlothinformer director of Leo Burnett’s Samsung shop, as its GCD — promoted partner Mike Wallen to the newly created position of Chief Content Officer. Wallen, who the release credits with bringing in Walmart and Red Bull, joined the agency in 2011 and will continue to run its “branded content division” Omelet Studio in addition to promoting an upcoming feature film about “ex-LA gang leaders turned street saviors” (their words).

Y&L Slaps Principal Title on Longtime CDs

It’s been a couple of months since we’ve checked in with Indy agency Young & Laramore, which last we remember sent Seattle residents scouring around town for a magic key. Anyhow, with that said and done, Y&L is showing some love for a pair of its longtime creative directors, Bryan Judkins and Trevor Williams, who can now add principal to their title. Judkins and Williams (pictured), two of only six employees to hold the agency principal title, joined Y&L in 2005 and 2004, respectively, with the former eventually taking the creative lead on Schlage and Scotts Lawn Service and the latter on Farm Bureau Insurance, Delta Faucet and Brizo (which he helped develop within Y&L) among other accounts.

Regarding Williams, whose work got AdAge ‘s attention a few months ago, Y&L ECD/principal Carolyn Hadlock says,  “Trevor has raised the bar for style and aesthetics across all of our clients, and this level of detail is apparent in his work for Brizo, where he leads creative development on everything from shop window design, to advertising campaigns, to Jason Wu events at Fashion Week.” During their time at Y&L, Williams and Judkins also served as managing directors of the agency’s internal design/division, Here There Be Monsters.
