Boardroom shake-up sees Arnold's global chief creative officer Jim Elliott quit with no successors

Situation vacant at Arnold as boardroom shake-up sees global chief creative officer Jim Elliott quit

Jim Elliott, global chief creative officer at Arnold, is to quit his role at the advertising agency having served two years in the post, which will remain unfilled once Elliott is gone.

The shake-up at the top follows a volatile period at parent firm Havas, which is undergoing a global restructuring that will see it streamline management to four regional chairmen reporting directly to global CEO Yannick Bolloré.

“During his two years at the agency, Jim made a tremendous impact to the agency in many ways, especially in the top talent he attracted and the great work that he helped deliver across our clients," said Arnold in a statement.

“We’re fortunate to have an extremely talented group of executive creative directors who drive our creative product and serve as an important partner to clients on all of our accounts. They will continue to play the role of creative steward across our client portfolio,” it added.

Elliott arrived at Arnold back in 2015 having spent four years as chief creative officer at Y&R New York.

It is understood that Elliott has not accepted any other positions as yet.
