NEW YORK: John Hollywood, MD of Zeno Group’s New York office for the last two years, stepped down from his role at the end of November.
During his last month at the firm, Hollywood helped Thomas Bunn transition from SVP in consumer marketing to head of Zeno’s New York office.
Zeno CEO Barby Siegel confirmed that Bunn is now the agency’s New York leader, reporting to her.
Hollywood said he is considering a wide range of options for his next career move, including agency, in-house, traditional, and non-traditional.
"There are some really ambitious things that we’re talking about, and I’m in a position right now where I don’t have to rush it, so I want to make sure it’s right," he explained.
Hollywood said he loved his time at Zeno Group and with Siegel.
"The people there are some of the best people I’ve ever worked with," he added.
Siegel, who noted that Hollywood made important contributions to the firm in the last two years, said the New York office is experiencing momentum right now and Bunn is in a good position to lead it.
In addition to Bunn’s appointment, Zeno promoted Sarah Rosanova from consumer SVP to head of the New York consumer practice, a newly created role. Rosanova, who now reports to Bunn, took on the position in September and is focused on growing the agency’s consumer work in New York, Siegel said.
Rosanova joined Zeno in January 2007. She most recently served as the client relationship leader on the firm’s Starbucks account, which included work for Seattle’s Best Coffee, Evolution Fresh Juice, and Teavana.
