Leo Burnett Worldwide Names New Chief Creative Officer
By Leo Burnett, 09 May 2006
Advertising agency Leo Burnett Worldwide on Monday promoted Mark Tutssel to chief creative officer, putting him in a position to oversee creative work from its 94 offices.
Tutssel, 47, currently deputy chief creative officer, will succeed Miguel Angel Furones in the job, the agency said in a statement. Furones will work with Tutssel through the rest of the year to manage the transition.
"When I joined Leo Burnett, I identified Mark as our creative leader of the future," Chief Executive Tom Bernardin said. "With Miguel Angel, I have groomed him for this important role, and I believe there's no better candidate to fill it."
Tutssel joined Leo Burnett USA in 2002 as deputy chief creative officer, overseeing creative work for clients including Nintendo Co Ltd., Morgan Stanley and Procter & Gamble.
Leo Burnett, with 94 advertising agencies in 83 countries, is a unit of Paris-based Publicis.
