Yesterday we broke the news that veteran producer Rupert Samuel would be leaving his position at goodness Mfg., but we couldn’t confirm which agency had signed him. Now we know: Samuel will rejoin the CP+B team after seven years away in the role of executive director of content production.
Many credit Samuel with developing the standard integrated production model during his original decade-long stint at CP+B, and with his re-hire the shop looks to recapture the glory that led one source to tell us that “I have never worked at a better agency” than CP+B in the early 2000s. Samuel confirms that sentiment in the release, writing:
“CP+B is literally family to me. I couldn’t be more excited to be headed back to where it all started and be re-united with the agency and everyone there.”
