Team Detroit to Launch NYC-Based Boutique for Lincoln

Ah, so this is why we got a last-minute invite to a conference here in New York starring WPP don Sir Martin Sorrell among others. Come Jan. 1, WPP’s Team Detroit unit will launch a new unit here in the Big Apple that will be dedicated to the Lincoln brand. The new division will be led by McKinney alum and automotive industry vet Cameron McNaughton, who joins as president, as well as CCO Jon Pearce, who formerly served as ECD at BBH New York.

Regarding the Lincoln link of Team Detroit, which will ship some members to NYC, McNaughton says in a statement, “Our goal is simple: To help our partners at Lincoln create a new future for their brand as it reinvents itself. To achieve this, we are dedicated to creating a new, best-in-category integrated agency team that utilizes the top creative talent recruited within and outside of the WPP and Team Detroit network.”

No, there is no name yet for the new division but we’ll let you take a stab.
