While we have very little to go on at the moment, a tipster tells us that Larry Hampel, who spent nearly a decade at Cramer-Krasselt and most recently held the executive creative director title, is no longer with the agency.
Things we do know: Hampel joined the agency almost exactly ten years ago to become one of the co-creative directors in its then-new New York office. This move followed a ten-year stint running Hampel/Stefanides, the agency he co-founded with fellow CD Dean Stefanides. His work during that period includes multiple PSAs attributed the Ad Council.
A tipster pointed us toward Hampel’s LinkedIn profile, which lists his current position as “Chief Creative Officer, Self-Employed” and has his stint with Cramer-Krasselt ending this year.
Unfortunately, we have not received word from the agency today so we can’t elaborate on the details of the story. More information as it arrives.
