John Norman Takes Some Time Off

We’ve been getting a few tips this afternoon about John Norman, CCO at the Martin Agency who sent the note below to staff letting then know that he’s taking leave for a few weeks, though we’re still not sure what the circumstances are regarding his brief departure. Here’s what we were forwarded:

“Hello my friends,

These past few months have been challenging to say the least, and we have all worked our asses off on current clients and a number of crazy pitches. I have found myself burning the candle at both ends for longer than I would have liked.

I have decided to take a sabbatical and regroup for a few weeks and spend some time with my family and myself, getting recharged for the remainder of 2012.

I look forward to seeing you all in June.

Word,

Jno.”

Prior to joining Martin at the end of 2009, Norman served as a creative at W+K Amsterdam and was one of the minds behind Coca-Cola’s award-winning “Happiness Factory while at the latter agency. We’ll see you back in June, sir.
