DS+P hires new head of planning

Kristin Burnham comes on board after nearly four years with Cossette.


Toronto agency DS+P has hired Kristin Burnham as its new head of planning.

Burnham was previously strategic planning director, then VP, strategic planning at Cossette. Prior to that, she held roles at Juniper Park, Bell, Lowe Roche, McCann Erickson and MacLaren McCann.

DS+P has seen some major leadership changes over the past several months. In March, partner Serge Rancourt left the shop to pursue interests outside the advertising world. Then in April, partners and co-ECDs Denise Rossetto and Todd Mackie left DS+P for BBDO.

In May, DS+P brought on Brian Murray, previously group creative director at Cundari, as its new CD.

DS+P’s client roster includes Canadian Film Centre, Canon Canada, Clover Leaf Seafoods, Enbridge, GoodLife Fitness, Go RVing and Miele.
