Top creative Dean Hacohen exits Cramer-Krasselt/Chicago

| No Comments

Cramer-Krasselt/Chicago said Thursday that the agency and its Executive Creative Director Dean Hacohen have agreed to part ways. The agency said it would conduct an aggressive search for his replacement. The agency also said it is looking for a creative leader with a pedigree the shop can leverage and the experience to handle the evolving and integrated needs of C-K's diverse portfolio.

With Hacohen gone, three of Chicago's largest ad agencies now are without creative leaders. DDB/Chicago has been searching for a CCO for more than a year, and Leo Burnett began a similar search several weeks ago.

News of Hacohen's exit comes as C-K was announced as one of four finalists for the TGI Friday's ad account. The other three finalists are the Martin Agency In Richmond, Va.; Doner in Southfield, Mich., and Publicis/New York.
