BBH’s Rosie Arnold calls time on 33-year stint for AMV BBDO

BBH’s senior creative Rosie Arnold is leaving BBH after 33 years to join AMV BBDO as creative partner and head of art.

She is to leave the agency in June, taking a month off before taking on the new role in August.

Alex Grieve and Adrian Rossi, executive creative directors at AMV BBDO, said: “Sometimes you don't need to construct a fancy sound bite to say how excited you are. Sometimes all you need to say is: Rosie Arnold is joining AMV."

Arnold joined the agency in 1983 as its 11th employee, kicking off a career that saw her create lauded work for brands including Levis and Axe. In that period, she has risen through the agency’s ranks, becoming a creative director in 1999 and deputy executive creative director in 2008.

Her departure is the latest in a string of recent high profile exits at the agency, with joint strategy bosses Jonathan Bottomley and Jason Gonsalves and managing director Mel Exon all leaving over the last five weeks.

Arnold was a judge for The Drum’s inaugural Dream Awards last year.
