To expand on what tipsters were telling us yesterday, yes, Marc Blumberg, currently president at MEPlusYOU–aka the agency formerly known as imc2–is turning his attention to his consumer shoe brand that he launched with his wife, Sharon. So, what does this mean exactly? Well, the folks at the agency echo what we’ve been hearing on the Spy line, mainly that the 16-year vet will be transitioning into a “key advisor” role at the agency so he can split time between his shoe venture and MEPlusYOU. In turn, Blumberg will be transitioning some of his agency responsibilities to current MEPlusYOU CEO, Doug Levy.
We’re still trying to get the actual name of the shoe company launched by Blumberg, which we’ve been told is “built on the principles of relationship era marketing and conscious capitalism.” Take that as you will. Along with Blumberg’s transition, MEPlusYou says that it’s made a key addition to its leadership team, which will be revealed in the next week or so. Update: Blumberg’s shoe company is called Chooze Shoes.
