Aussie expat John Foster has scored a plum job as one of five creative directors at BBH New York, reporting to ECD Kevin Roddy. He will be primarily responsible for the Vaseline brand portfolio, being global CD on this business.
Prior to this, Foster's most recent job was one of Craig Davis's appointments as regional CD of JWT Middle East, based in Dubai. Before that he held senior creative roles at Saatchi & Saatchi, Singapore and Leo Burnett, Sydney.
Foster told CB: "It's a superb gig, being English I've long been an admirer of their work and their ethos. They seem like a great bunch of people as well, I can't wait to get going. I've always had a real desire to work in New York too, so this just feels right on so many levels."

To all you detractors and protractors out there. I bet you secretly wish you were at BBH working on anything they gave you.
