Business Insider: Ad agency Crispin Porter Bogusky just hired a new CEO away from rival Omnicom as it tries to turn its fortunes around

Summary List Placement MDC Partners-owned ad agency Crispin Porter Bogusky hired Marianne Malina as its new CEO just over a month after her predecessor Erik Sollenberg left the agency, according to a person with direct knowledge. Malina previously served as president of GSD&M, an Austin, Texas-based agency owned by MDC rival Omnicom. CPB and its creative leader Alex Bogusky gained fame in the early 2000s for helping Domino's Pizza turn its flailing business around and creating Burger King's surreal "Subservient Chicken" ad campaign, but current and former employees have said CPB's future is uncertain. CPB lost the Domino's account in late 2020 and lost biggest client Infiniti in March. CPB hired former Activision Blizzard executive Jorge Calleja as chief creative officer just after the Domino's loss in an attempt to reset its fortunes. The agency's other clients include American Airlines, Hotels.com, and Veterans United. CPB's parent company is also undergoing a significant restructuring. [more....]
