After years of trying to get him to join its team, Bimm has finally landed Tim Bowen.

Tim Bowen

Bowen started in his role as senior vice-president and chief customer officer at the Toronto-based marketing communications agency earlier this week.

Most recently focused on consulting work, Bowen has a long history at agencies including BBDO Canada and Cossette, where he was SVP and general manager.

Over the course of nearly two decades in advertising, he has worked on accounts from Kraft Canada and Labatt Breweries of Canada to General Mills and McDonald’s.

Bimm president and CEO Mike Da Ponte commented in a release that he had worked together with Bowen previously at Cossette and “was impressed with his multidimensional approach to his clients and his high strategic IQ.” After four years of trying to get him onboard at Bimm, Da Ponte said Bowen will be instrumental in the agency’s continued growth, leading its work on Sears and Loblaw.

An independent agency, Bimm has a client roster that also includes Audi, Scotiabank, Shaw and Harley Davidson.
