In other agency news, 72AndSunny hired Josh Mandel away from Nike and Reprise Media made John Anagnost president.
DDB Chicago hired Jonathan Sackett as chief digital officer and managing director, a new position for the agency. In the role, Sackett, who starts Monday, is responsible for recruiting talent, building digital platforms, and developing client work.
"We strive to offer our clients creativity with accountability," Sackett told ClickZ. "We have big ideas on the right ways to stream digital technology and social media together in a way that will deliver big results."
Sackett joins from The Martin Agency, where he held the same title. While at Martin, Sackett worked with clients such as Tylenol, Wal-Mart, Geico, UPS, and Microsoft. "While I was at Martin, we went from working with 15 percent of our clients in a digital capacity to 90 percent in just two years," said Sackett. He is credited with driving the Richmond, VA-based agency's digital reorganization.
DDB's recent noted client work has included Volkswagen's "Fun Theory" (Stockholm), Clorox's Reverse Graffiti Project (San Francisco), and McAfee's H*Commerce (San Francisco).
