Lee Clow’s “Not Going Anywhere”

clow_lee1.jpg

Our previous post about Duncan Milner‘s promotion to CCO at TBWA\Media Arts Lab led some commenters to surmise that Lee Clow was “stepping down” or “quietly stepping away.”

As a result, Clow sent a letter to staffers which we’ve obtained where he says he’s “not going anywhere”, adding “look at how the blogosphere decided to make it a conversation about me.” First off, we didn’t make it about him; we believe we reported a story accurately that focused on Milner. Second, we don’t speak for our commenters and vice versa, so let’s keep it at that. Anyways, if you care to read his brief internal opus, it’s after the jump.

More: “We Hear: Lee Clow’s Had Enough


“Hey Everyone:

So we tried to promote Duncan Milner because of the great job he’s been
doing leading the Media Arts Lab and look at how the blogosphere
decided to make it a conversation about me.

As you all know, I’m here every day meddling in everything that goes
on, pushing the creative on many brands including keeping an eye on
Apple.

I remain Chairman of MAL, Global Creative Director of Media Arts and
Chief Creative Officer of TBWA Worldwide.

I’m not going anywhere.

Love, Lee”
