Notes: Wieden & Kennedy is a traditional agency with offices in Portland, Ore., New York, Tokyo, London, Amsterdam and Shanghai. Among personnel changes the past year, Tom Blessington in September 2006 became managing director at W&K's Portland headquarters office, a new position. Mr. Blessington formerly was managing director at TBWA/Chiat/Day in Playa del Rey, Calif. In February 2007, Rebecca Van Dyck, the agency's global account director on Nike, an account W&K has held since 1982, left to become worldwide advertising director at Apple. A month later, Nike notified the agency it would shift some of its creative away from Wieden. (Wieden still has the majority of the Nike account, including basketball, men's training and women's fitness). The lead creative director on Nike shoes, Michael Folino, left the agency when Nike' notification became public. He had been at the shop only since July 2006, joining W&K at that time from DDB Chicago.
