Adweek reported DDB completed assembling its leadership clan by hiring—you guessed it—a White man. “This final hire of Eric [Zuncic] as Chief Strategy Officer puts the last puzzle piece in place,” said DDB North America CEO Wendy Clark. “Our North American leadership team is complete and encompasses some of the most impressive talent working in our industry. We are incredibly excited for Eric to join us and hit the ground running.” Guess Clark can take a well-deserved rest from her restless ambition to diversify the industry. Her leadership team is a complete farce that encompasses the exclusivity in the industry. All that’s left is for Clark to collect an ADCOLOR® trophy.

DDB North America completed its leadership team with the hiring of Eric Zuncic as chief strategy officer, effective Oct. 2.
Zuncic will be tasked with overseeing strategy for all of DDB’s offices in North America, including We Are Unlimited, the McDonald’s-dedicated unit launched last year. He will report directly to DDB North America CEO Wendy Clark.
“This final hire of Eric as Chief Strategy Officer puts the last puzzle piece in place,” Clark said in a statement. “Our North American leadership team is complete and encompasses some of the most impressive talent working in our industry. We are incredibly excited for Eric to join us and hit the ground running.”
Zuncic arrives at DDB from Crispin Porter + Bogusky, where he has served as North America chief strategy officer since June of 2015, following over three years as head of strategy for Mekanism.
Zuncic’s hire follows the arrivals of Britt Hayes in the newly-created role of chief people officer and Toygar Bazarkaya as We Are Unlimited chief creative officer this past May, as well as Ari Weiss as DDB North America chief creative officer last December.
