Yes, word is out that Bob Winter, former Y&R (what was then Chicago) CCO who left for Crispin Porter + Bogusky in late 2012, has found a new gig at VSA Partners. Winter, who helped create the Bud Light “Real Men of Genius” campaign while at DDB and led wins on Dave & Buster’s and Famous Footwear during his stint at Y&R, will now take on the role of partner/executive creative director at VSA, which houses offices in its homebase of Chicago as well as Detroit and NYC.

In a statement, said agency’s CEO, Dana Arnett, says, “The addition of this world-class marketing talent just continues to advance VSA’s legacy of designing powerful, human-centered experiences across channels that are realized to the highest creative and strategic standards. When those dots are effectively connected, clients and consumers always benefit.”

As mentioned before, during his career, Winter also served as a creative director at Goodby and an SVP/CD at Leo Burnett.
