Roper, CP+B Part Ways

We’ve received confirmation that Crispin Porter + Bogusky and ECD Tim Roper “mutually decided it was the right time” to part ways. From what sources familiar with the matter tell us, Roper is leaving to pursue his main passion these days, which is directing (he most recently wrote and helmed the Hulu/Will Arnett work including the Super Bowl spot). Roper spent 15 years at CP+B give or take, and among other things, served as a copywriter in the agency’s Miami office early on before moving up to creative director at the first incarnation of its L.A. branch in the early aughts.

During his later years at Crispin, Roper led creative for not only Hulu, but for agency clients ranging from Sprite to Volkswagen. Here’s an official comment from CP+B CEO Andrew Keller: “Tim Roper has been a great asset to our creative team during his time at CP+B. He has a number of other interests and we are in agreement that now is the perfect time for him to pursue them. We thank him for his contributions to the agency and wish him tremendous success moving forward.”
