Walker Walks Away from Victors & Spoils

walkerbuntin1After spending nearly two years as an executive creative director at Havas-owned, Boulder-based, crowdsourcing agency Victors & Spoils, Chad Walker has split for Music City and taken residence as chief creative officer at Nashville-based Buntin Group. Buntin, if you needed to know, has worked with clients ranging from Bass Pro Shops to Burger King. On the V&S end, we’re awaiting comment on the matter and if there are plans to replace, but prior to joining said agency, Walker, a self-proclaimed bike geek, reader and Kentucky farm boy, served as a creative director at Arnold as well as a copywriter at both Ogilvy and kbs+.

So, What Has Victors & Spoils Been Up To?

We forgot to mention this yesterday, but might as well let you know that Victors & Spoils CEO John Winsor updated his blog this week to bring us up to speed on what’s happening with his now-Havas-owned, Boulder-based agency. If you don’t feel like actually clicking the link, we’ll just give you the Cliffs Notes version and tell you that the theme this time around is “making momentum.”

The contents within include the fact that V&S has promoted several staffers and hired a few folks in the process. On the promotion front, Winsor & Co. have promoted Noah Clark (who was interviewed by his own boss on this here site) and Arnold NY alum Chad Walker to co-executive creative directors. In addition, V&S elevated Kate McQuail (yet another CP+B alum) to creative director while also bringing on former TM Advertising creative Chris Cima as a CD.
