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 head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
