The World: New York - Global creative chief Cranin splits from McCann

Jonathan Cranin, the McCann World Group's worldwide creative director, has parted ways with the network. He will not be replaced.

Cranin has worked at the agency for 14 years and was part of the team that picked up the global MasterCard and Microsoft accounts in 1999.

Before his global role, he was the chief creative officer for North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and has worked on accounts including Coca-Cola, Nestle and Johnson & Johnson.

Upon leaving the agency, Cranin said that he would take some time off to spend with his family before making his next career move.
