If You Want to Have Some Say, Become A Client

Dave Linne, 47, a former creative director at Leo Burnett is now in a new role at ConAgra. That’s right, he is now a client.
As senior VP-advertising, global market strategy, Linne believes he will have more impact on the work, according to Ad Age.
Creatives at Nitro, DDB/San Francisco, Venables Bell & Partners, Element 79 and Wondergroup will now be dealing with one of their own. Could be interesting for all involved.
Omaha-based ConAgra has many iconic brands under its umbrella, including Pam cooking spray, Reddi-Wip, Egg Beaters, Chef Boyardee, Hunt’s tomato products and Orville Redenbacher.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am now head of brand strategy and creative direction at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
