Ex-CP+B ECD Roper Heads to EnergyBBDO (Updated)

TimRoper1After spending the last two years as a writer/director at production company Partizan, Tim Roper has returned to the agency world, joining up with EnergyBBDO in “a senior creative capacity” according to sources familiar with the matter.

Roper, who we’ve been told arrived at the Chicago-based agency last month, spent the majority of his ad career at Crispin Porter + Bogusky–15 years in all–moving from Miami to the L.A. office over a decade ago and eventually settling in its Boulder HQ before leaving for Partizan in 2012. No word yet on his exact title at EnergyBBDO (we’re hearing ECD), but during his lengthy stay at CP+B, Roper worked on campaigns including the Burger King “Simpsonize Me” effort, the Will Arnett-starring Hulu spots and Sprite “Sublymonal.” During his career, Roper also worked early on as a copywriter/CD at Mullen.

Update: We received the following tip, clarifying Roper’s role at EngergyBBDO: “Tim Roper is a still a Director and committed to that role industry-wide. He is one of those rare talents who can do both. Currently he is assisting Energy BBDO and CCO Mark Taylor in an ECD capacity on several pieces of business. Duration, yet to be [determined].”
