Goodby Welcomes New CD to the Fold

Half-Swede, half-Argentinean Joakim Borgstrom is the latest creative to join up with Goodby Silverstein & Partners and work on the Chevy account alongside ECDs Hunter Hindman and Rick Condos. Borgstrom, who will serve as creative director at his new gig, hails from W+K Amsterdam, where he oversaw creative on Electronic Arts and spearheaded interactive work for Coca-Cola, Nike and Carlsberg among other clients.
