O’Brien Resigns from BBDO SF

We’ve received confirmation that Curt O’Brien, who served as VP, director of content for the past three years at BBDO San Francisco (one of his most recent projects was an SF Giants campaign), has resigned from the agency. We’ve been told that the main reason is that O’Brien’s been missing his hometown of Los Angeles and wants to reside there once again. O’Brien actually served as senior broadcast producer for three years at BBDO’s office in L.A. before heading up to the Bay Area. Prior to BBDO, he spent four years at Y&R as a broadcast producer in both the Dearborn, MI and Irvine, CA offices.

BBDO SF tells us that there are plans to replace O’Brien but for the time being, his responsibilities are being absorbed internally.
