Our good pals at TBWA\Chiat\Day LA follow up their recent hire of Crispin alum Matt Bonin with several promotions within the creative department including the appointment of Olivier Rabenschlag as first-ever group creative director of Media Arts. The creative, who has been with Chiat LA for nearly three years, will still maintain his CD title for Activision, Infiniti and the Grammys.
During his time at the agency, he’s had his hand in “There’s a Soldier in All of Us,” the “MusicisLifeisMusic” campaign for the aforementioned awards show, the Nissan Leaf iAd and played a key role in Chiat LA winning the global Visa pitch. Apparently Rabenschlag is ahead of his time according to a statement from TBWA\Chiat\Day LA CCO Rob Schwartz, who says, “He lives two years ahead of all of us. Fortunately, he’s willing to share the future with those of us living here in 2011.”
In addition to Rabenschlag, Chiat LA promoted Becca Morton and Gage Clegg to GCDs on Pedigree, PUR and Visa Olympics, Patrick Condo and Bob Rayburn to CDs on Infiniti and last but not least, Goodby alum Will Hammond to global CD on Visa. Hammond, who joined TBWA\Chiat\Day LA in the fall of 2009, most recently served as U.S. creative director on the Visa account.
