Rebecca Stambanis Leaves Goodby for W+K

kiss_goodbye1.jpg

It looks like Goodby is taking a hit in the planning department this week as sources confirm to us that deputy director of brand strategy Rebecca Stambanis has left the agency for Wieden+Kennedy.

Tipsters tell us that that Stambanis, who worked on Nintendo’s “Shake It” effort as well as clients like Haagen-Dazs among other things while at Goodby, is taking on a global planning director role on Nike at the latter agency–though W+K has yet to confirm this officially. Stambanis’s departure marks the second major Goodby defection in the past week following Matt Herrmann, who joined McCann West.
