Wharton Winds Up at Barbarian

Well, that didn’t take long. A day after reporting that Madison Wharton was parting ways with IPG-owned shop Momentum, the Barbarian Group (which throws one hell of a rooftop party) announced that she’s joined up with the Cheil-owned shop’s New York office as executive director of production. Here’s a quote from TBG president, Sophie Kelly:

“I’m delighted to announce that Madison Wharton is joining us as Executive Director of Production.

Madison’s extensive experience, which ranges from digital to broadcast to physical installations, combined with her considerable background in training, building and growing departments across multiple cities, will be invaluable to TBG as we look to expand our production team over the coming months. We’ve been on the hunt to fill this role as we build out our leadership team, and Madison comes about as highly recommended as we’ve seen in the industry. Welcome Madison, we’re excited to have you on board!”
In her new role, Wharton, who officially starts at TBG on Sept. 17, will work across all mediums, including applications, digital products and campaigns, while also focusing on growing the company’s existing production department.
