Topher Lorette is set to come aboard ad agency Argonaut as head of integrated production starting on Aug. 15. He comes over from Droga5 where he was EP/group integrated production manager and ran a team of broadcast, digital, social, and print producers on accounts such as JPMorgan Chase, Pizza Hut, Clearasil, and Airwick.
At San Francisco-based Argonaut, Lorette succeeds Dan Watson who is leaving the agency to pursue passion projects.

Lorette’s work over the years has been recognized at various industry award shows including his work on Canon, which won four Cannes Lions including Gold for Branded Content, Silver for Promotions and Film, and Bronze for Titanium/Integrated. He was also part of the team that produced the Emmy-award winning commercial of the year in 2013--Canon’s “Inspired” spot--while at Grey New York.
