Geiger left JWT having spent three years with them from February 2012 to January 2015.

JWT officially describes Geiger’s pending departure as “amicable” and “not a surprise”.

The agency release by David&Goliath, Geiger’s hire is the latest move in a “growth plan” that included the July promotion of client services chief Brian Dunbar to president, ECD Colin Jeffery to CCO, and Seema Miller to chief strategy officer as well as the addition of Jack in the Box (first campaign here), ZICO, and LG Mobile to D&G’s client roster.

Geiger will report directly to founder David Angelo, who elaborates on those plans with a quote:

Over the past year, we have been assembling nothing short of an all-star leadership team…[Geiger’s] entrepreneurial style and big thinking are a perfect fit for our Brave culture as we continue to seek out brands in need of overcoming marketing goliaths.

Geiger adds: “I’m really excited to return to an independent creative agency like D&G where I can be closer to the people and the work. When I first met with David and the rest of the team, we just clicked…I can’t wait to get started.”
