TBWA\Chiat\Day New York today announced that it has hired John Doris as Head of Integrated Production.
Doris, who starts at the agency this week, is the first major hire for newly-appointed Chief Creative Officer Chris Beresford-Hill, who joined the agency in October.
Reporting directly to Beresford-Hill, Doris will lead production for the agency, and be a key driver in exploring and discovering new media, technology and platforms across its client roster, which includes Accenture, adidas, eos, Hilton, McDonald’s, Michelin, Nissan, PepsiCo, TD Bank, Thomson Reuters, Tic-Tac and Travelers Insurance, among others.
“John and I both see production the same way, not just an extension of creative, but a true partnership,” said Beresford-Hill. “I’ve worked with John in the past and seen firsthand the passion and expertise that he brings to the table, and so I feel incredibly fortunate to have him as a partner, leading production and bringing disruptive creative ideas to life for our clients.”
Doris comes to TBWA from Saatchi & Saatchi New York, where he was Head of Integrated Production. As a lead and longtime curator for the world-renowned Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors Showcase, held annually in Cannes, Doris also has unparalleled experience in discovering and working with the best emerging filmmakers in the industry.
