In this new position, Girardin will be responsible for bringing strategic focus and insights to McGarryBowen's clients, primarily the newest Kraft Foods brands that have joined the Chicago roster. That would include Kraft singles. "Chicago is a critical market for our agency," said John McGarry, the agency CEO, adding "Sean's creative approach to both identifying and presenting insights will be an asset to our clients." Previously, Girardin was a planning director at Leo Burnett's flagship Chicago office, where he managed a cross-agency strategic team for Buick. Girardin also has worked at Element 79/Chicago and Euro RSCG/Chicago. It's not altogether surprising that Girardin hails from Burnett. MB/Chicago's top creatives, Ned Crowley and John Moore, both were previously employed at Burnett.
