On January 12, 2015, we were excited to announce that Jim Elliott will be joining Arnold in the new role of Global Chief Creative Officer. In this role, Elliott will drive Arnold’s creative product across the network and partner with Global President Pam Hamlin to foster a unified creative vision and building the brand both in the U.S. and globally. Elliott will be based out of our headquarters in Boston.
Elliott most recently served as Chief Creative Officer of Y&R New York, where he worked on leading national and global clients including Land Rover, Dell, Campbell Soup Company and Virgin Atlantic, helping the agency win numerous and varied globally recognized awards along the way – including Cannes Lions, CLIOs, AICP, ANDYs, One Show, Radio-Mercury, London International, New York Festivals, The Web Marketing Association, ADC and D&AD.
Previously, Elliott was Group Creative Director/Writer at Goodby Silverstein & Partners, where he helped create iconic work for Hyundai, Haagen-Dazs, Denny’s, HP, Yahoo!, NetFlix, and Sonic Drive-In. His work on the “Help the Honey Bees” campaign for Haagen-Dazs helped win nearly every top honor in the industry including The One Club’s first-ever Green Pencil award. “Help the Honey Bees” was also one of the campaigns nominated for Ad Age’s “Top Ad Campaigns of the 21st Century.” His work for Hyundai is credited with helping to turn the struggling car manufacturer into one of the most successful auto companies in America, during one of the worst economic climates on record.
