Mike Rogers, vice chairman-executive creative director at DDB
Needham Worldwide, New York, resigned from the agency, as expected. A spokeswoman cited "philosophical differences" for the parting. Mr. Rogers' duties will be taken on by two newly appointed co-creative officers: Steve Landsberg, previously creative director at Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide, Toronto, and David Nathanson, group creative director on DDB Needham's Compaq Computer Corp. business. Mr. Nathanson will concentrate on the Compaq and Lockheed Martin accounts, and continues to team with Giff Crosby, newly promoted to executive creative director from senior creative director. Mr. Landsberg's partner has not yet been appointed.
