Norton Leaving BBDO Atlanta

We’ve received confirmation from the BBDO camp that Cabot Norton, who’s spent the last three years at said agency’s Atlanta office and most recently served as its SVP/executive creative director, is leaving as of tomorrow. No other word on what’s next for Norton or BBDO ATL, but sources are telling us that the creative exec wants to return to New York.  After all, Norton spent well over a decade at BBDO’s Big Apple hub, working his way up from copywriter to creative director on accounts ranging from FedEx to AT&T.

If you recall, Norton was part of a trio of creative leaders at BBDO Atlanta–the other two being Heather Gorman and Jeff Spillanewho succeeded outgoing CCO Bobby Pearce a year ago. BBDO and Spillane/Gorman parted ways late last year and the pair is now based in NYC.  We’ll fill in the blanks when we hear more.
