Erik V. Back in Paris?

The saga continues as reliable sources and tipsters are each telling us that Erik Vervroegen, he of Goodby fame if you remember, is back in Paris and taking on a top creative role at an agency called Marcel, which merged with Publicis Net a year ago to create what some called a “turbo-charged” digital boutique. If you recall, Jeff Goodby did say Erik V. “will be leaving us for a post as global chief creative officer at a network that will take him back to his European roots.” We’ll let you know when we get official confirmation regarding Vervroegen’s Paris homecoming, so hold your breath.

Update: It looks like we didn’t have to wait long. According to Campaign, Erik V.’s role is larger than we expected as he’s been picked to oversee creative in all countries for Publicis Worldwide outside of France, Australia, New Zealand and the USA and lead creative on the global Ray-Ban business.
