LOS ANGELES — Golin's digital lead Chris Baccus has joined American real estate giant Caruso Affiliated as SVP of digital marketing. 

Baccus makes the jump nearly one year after Judy Johnson left her post as president of Golin's Western region to become the Caruso's first chief marketing and communications officer. Among the retail properties owned by Caruso are The Grove in Los Angeles, The Commons at Calabasas and The Americana at the Brand. 

Baccus joined Golin in 2012 from AT&T as executive director of digital and social media leading strategy for the firm's clients in the Western Region, including Nintendo, Toyota, Las Vegas Sands Corporation, PetSmart, King’s Hawaiian and Farmer John. According to his LinkedIn, Baccus "doubled digital revenue and team growth by increasing business with current clients and with new business wins." 

Golin didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.
