TBWA names Chris Garbutt global creative president
TBWA Worldwide on Tuesday announced it has appointed Chris Garbutt global creative president.
Garbutt returns to TBWA from Ogilvy & Mather in New York, where he was named chief creative officer in February 2014, after working as CCO of Ogilvy & Mather France. He was previously European Creative Director at TBWA\Paris where he worked on Nissan, Sony Playstation and Absolut Vodka.
Garbutt will work out of TBWA's New York office, where he will report to TBWA Worldwide CEO Troy Ruhanen and Worldwide Creative Director John Hunt. 
"Our client partners want and deserve the very best minds on their business, and our people throughout the network want to be inspired everyday by creative leaders who are keen on making the unreal real," Ruhanen said in a statement. "Chris is one such leader, and not having him wasn't an option in my book – he is one of ours. The richness and volume of his work speaks for itself, and his leadership and thinking will ensure TBWA remains The Disruption Company."
Garbutt's hire follows a reorganization in March, when TBWA announced a new regional structure aimed at spanning global markets. Ruhanen named presidents to support him across 15 core global markets.
