McCann Erickson New York on Tuesday announced Lea Ladera will join its ranks as executive creative director.

"We have admired Lea’s work for some time, from her recent Tina Fey work for American Express to her earlier amazing campaign for Macy’s. We are incredibly excited to bring that level of thinking to our clients," Bryan said in a statement.

According to Murphy, "Lea is a superb storyteller who has helped to creatively define brands and even to integrate them into pop culture. She’s a great addition to our team."
