Updating the departure of Burnett Chief Creative Officer John Condon

| No Comments

Update on the John Condon matter at Leo Burnett/Chicago. Sources are reporting that ex- -- or soon-to-be-ex -- Chief Creative Officer Condon left the Burnett building at 35 W. Wacker on Monday, possibly for the last time. And as we suspected he would, Burnett Global Chief Creative Officer Mark Tutssel reportedly has arrived on the scene presumably to help sort out who will run Burnett's creative department going forward. Whether Tutssel can find an outsider who wants the job now remains to be seen. John Montgomery is one name we've heard mentioned in recent days as a possible internal choice to replace Condon. Another is Peter McHugh. But it's entirely possible Tutssel may decide an infusion of new blood is urgently needed. Meanwhile, Burnett still has not officially confirmed Condon is exiting as chief creative officer in Chicago.
