DDB Chicago announced today that highly-regarded industry leader Andrew Kasprzycki will be joining the agency as EVP, Global Client Lead starting immediately on leadership of the future-forward ConAgra team. The ConAgra account is the most recent DDB Client to align with DDB’s “Agency of the Future” model, which was most recently operationalized for the U.S. McDonald’s business via sister agency We Are Unlimited.
Paul Gunning, Chief Executive Officer of DDB Chicago stated, “We are thrilled to have Andrew joining our team in this leadership role. He’s a proven and highly acclaimed thought leader in the industry whose experience and know-how will have immediate impact for many of our client partners and our agency at large.”
Andrew joins the agency most recently from Starcom Worldwide, a division of Publicis Groupe, where he most recently served as Executive Vice President, Managing Director leading the New Establishment Brands Group. The group drove award-winning global business results for brands like Airbnb, Twitter and Houzz, among others. Prior to joining Starcom, Andrew was founder and President at Proximity Chicago, a division of BBDO, where he drove exponential growth for the agency and clients. The return to DDB is a coming home of sorts for Kasprzycki as he was with Tribal Chicago from 2005-2008, working with multiple clients.
“Our industry is always talking about the agency of the future and DDB truly understands that the future is now. In a world of always on, connected experiences, I’m excited to bring a powerful mix of collaboration and creativity to impact our client’s business,” said Andrew.
