- NEW YORK
Shannon McGlothin is coming aboard BBH New York as an executive creative director. He joins fellow ECD Gerard Caputo and will be responsible for running the Global Vaseline business along with helping to round out the creative leadership of the New York office.
Over the years McGlothin has worked with clients such as Samsung, Coca-Cola, Nike, The GAP, LVMH, PlayStation and Electronic Arts. He was most recently at Omelet and prior to that was with Leo Burnett, Deutsch, CP+B, and Wieden+Kennedy. His work has gained recognition at such shows as Cannes, CLIO, D&AD, and The One Show. McGlothin is a graduate of Indiana University and the Herron School of Art.
Ari Weiss, New York CCO of BBH, said: “Shannon and I crossed paths at Wieden+Kennedy in Portland and ever since I’ve been a huge fan of his work and Shannon as a person. His incredible eye is only surpassed by his big thinking. He’s proven it time and time again with iconic campaigns including Coca-Cola ‘Video Game’ [Wieden] and PlayStation ‘To Michael’ [Deutsch]. Great creatives do great work wherever they go and Shannon has done just that.”
In recent months the BBH New York office has bolstered its creative department, promoting Lucas Bongioanni, Philip Sicklinger and Alex Booker to creative directors along with the hire of Colin Kim as creative director.
McGlothin said: “I’m excited to join the team at BBH New York. They’re independently minded, risk takers, collaborators and instigators. Above all, they’re real people that have the desire to make great work, break conventions and drive popular culture.”
