Jay Benjamin has made his first key hires since joining Saatchi & Saatchi New York as chief creative officer in late April, naming Chris Moreira and Mark Schöller as executive creative directors, a new set of titles for the agency.

Mr. Moreira and Mr. Schöller's partnership has spanned agencies including JWT Sydney, Leo Burnett Sydney and, most recently, Crispin Porter + Bogusky, where they were creative directors.

Their work has included brands in various categories, such as Kellogg's, McDonald's, Canon, Best Buy, Schick, Subaru and Smirnoff. "Road to Recovery," the flood relief project they worked on for Bundaberg rum, earned them awards including three Cannes Lions.

Mr. Moreira and Mr. Schöller will be working across the agency's account portfolio, overseeing work for clients including P&G, General Mills, Walmart.

Saatchi & Saatchi is part of Publicis Groupe, which said earlier this week that Saatchi Worldwide CEO Kevin Roberts would become executive chairman in January, succeeded by Robert Senior, currently CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi Fallon Group in EMEA.
