ECD Toombs Out at Anomaly

Screen Shot 2014-07-28 at 12.55.03 PM

Is there a creative shakeup going on at Anomaly NY?

Today we can confirm that ECD Ian Toombs, a longtime staffer who played a lead role on accounts like Converse (relevant spots here), is no longer with the agency.

Toombs worked at the MDC-owned shop (which boasts clients like Budweiser, American Express, Converse, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Google, among others) for several years, moving from art director to CD and then ECD; The New York Times reported on his promotion just over a year ago.

His departure follows the arrival of ECD Eric Segal, who Anomaly hired away from Grey in May; plans at the time held that Segal would partner with Toombs starting this month. Today, Toombs’ name no longer appears on the agency’s website, and his LinkedIn profile is a bit of a blank slate.

No official word on where he’s headed or whether Anomaly’s New York office has plans to replace him.

Updates as we receive them.
