Here’s the Note Confirming Erik V’s Split from Goodby

Just in case you needed closure on this whole Erik Vervroegen matter, we’ve obtained the copy from a memo written by Jeff Goodby that was sent to the whole agency regarding the status of the ECD, who joined GS&P from TBWA\Paris in 2009. Here goes:

“We’re sorry to report that Erik Vervroegen will be leaving us for a post as global chief creative officer at a network that will take him back to his European roots.

Erik has been a refreshing, expansive presence here for two years, and we will miss his unique perspectives and smoldering drive for excellence.   He is quite unlike anyone else who has ever worked here, and that has been instructive for all of us.

Please congratulate him and remind him to go easy on those Italian motorcycles and be mindful of his hands when breaking two by fours or whatever it is he does.

JG”

And yes, we are trying to get confirmation on Erik V’s new “network.” Stay tuned.
