Steffan Postaer Out at Euro RSCG

Our tipsters were spot-on yet again. Since the holidays, we’ve been hearing that Steffan Postaer, who was “promoted” to chairman at Euro RSCG Chicago once Jason Peterson was hired as CCO, is leaving the agency. After a few back-and-forths with the agency that led nowhere, we’ve finally received confirmation that Postaer is officially out at Euro Chi come next week. Postaer recently took a trip and once he returned, both parties decided it would be best to part ways. Sources familiar with the matter tell us that he was “instrumental” in building the Chicago office over the course of his six years there. Here’s their full statement:

“After six years of creative leadership at Euro RSCG Chicago, Chairman Steffan Postaer will be leaving the agency as of January 14. We thank him for his role in helping to drive the dramatic growth of our agency, and his leadership in helping us become a unified agency, combining advertising and digital into a new model. We wish him the very best with his personal writing and future projects.”
