DeAngelo, Havas Chicago Part Ways

Nearly a year to the day that Havas Chicago (well, Euro RSCG Chicago at the time) welcomed executive creative director Tyler DeAngelo to the fold, sources familiar with the matter confirm that the creative exec has parted ways with the agency. During his time with the agency, DeAngelo worked on accounts ranging from PlayStation to Jim Beam to Michelob Ultra.

From what we’ve been told, DeAngelo is moving back to NYC, where he spent five years as integrated CD at DeVito/Verdi and also served as an instructor at Miami Ad School’s Brooklyn branch. We’re hearing DeAngelo might not be the only ECD departure from Havas, but we’ll keep you posted if we find out more. Prior to Havas, DeAngelo served as partner/creative director at digital prodco Modern Publicity and had a two-year stint on the creative side at Grey NY. Lest we forget, he’s also the mastermind behind “Fifth Avenue Frogger” (see below).

Euro Chi Welcomes New ECD, Who Appears to Be a Big ‘Frogger’ Fan

After spending the last four-and-a-half years as integrated creative director at New York shop DeVito/Verdi, Tyler DeAngelo has headed to Chicago to assume the newly created ECD position at Euro RSCG. As ECD, DeAngelo, who also moonlights as an instructor at Miami Ad School’s Brooklyn location, will lead creative for a client roster that includes Cracker Barrel, Hefty, Playstation, Reynolds and Sears.

Prior to DeVito/Verdi, DeAngelo spent a few years as partner/creative director at a digital production company called Modern Publicity and had a two-year stint as a creative at Grey NY. Perhaps most interesting, though, are his non-advertising activities including his pet project “Fifth Avenue Frogger,” which is DeAngelo’s updated take on the classic game Frogger. George Costanza would be proud.
