Mills Looks to Fill Creative Gap Frakes Leaves Behind

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, MICH. – The next project for new Ross Roy president-ceo Peter Mills is to find someone to oversee its creative department.
Last week the agency announced the retirement of executive creative director Jack Frakes, who has headed the department for the past 11 years. He will remain at the agency until a successor is found.
‘Jack has provided Ross Roy with a dedication that has helped the agency distinguish itself as a creative force during a period of tremendous growth,’ said Mills.
Mills, who joined Ross Roy last month from BBDO, where he was president/chief operating officer North America, said the search for a new creative director will begin immediately, but said no list of candidates has been drawn up.
