Departing Conill CCO Gets Creative with Goodbye Note

Conill-grand

We have no idea where Chief Creative Officer Ross Ludwig of L.A and Miami-based Publicis agency Conill–described as “Saatchi’s Latino unit“–is going.

But an anonymous tipster does tell us that he’s resigning after just under two years on the job. And we like his goodbye email, subject “Farewell”:

As most of you know by now, I am leaving Conill this week.   However, you might not know the reason.   I’ve always believed in being as open and honest as possible, so allow me explain.   I am moving on to pursue my lifelong goal of becoming an Olympic Ice Dancer. It has been my dream since I was a little boy and I know that if I didn’t pursue this now, at this moment in time, I would never get another chance.

The road ahead will be challenging (mostly because I can’t ice skate) and the odds are surely against me, but I believe if I give it everything I’ve got, then it will happen.   So with that in mind, please wish me luck and join me for a drink Thursday at 5pm.

Thanks.

Gotta go and sharpen those skates.

Ross

Again, we’re not sure where he’s headed, but based on the evidence presented we’d say that it’s probably somewhere north of L.A.
