The Rob Rasmussen era at Tribal DDB is now over as the agency’s chief creative officer has called it quits and is heading back to the West Coast. Rasmussen joined Tribal as its first CCO at the beginning of 2010 following senior-level creative gigs in New York at both BBH and R/GA. As a result of his departure, Rasmussen’s will be filled by two executive creative directors as the statement below from Tribal DDB attests. Read on:
“Rob Rasmussen has decided to leave his position as Chief Creative Officer of Tribal DDB US to move back to the West Coast with his family, and we wish him all the best in his next endeavor. While we are sad to see Rob leave, we are also excited to announce that we have elevated Kinney Edwards to the role of Executive Creative Director in New York. For the better part of six years, Kinney has led or directly contributed to some of the office’s best work, and we are thrilled he will continue to contribute to the culture and creative product of Tribal DDB. Additionally, a second Executive Creative Director will be announced in the near future.”
Kinney Edwards has been with Tribal DDB for five years and most recently served as group creative director at the agency.
