Well, this is news to us but we’ve received confirmation from sources familiar with the matter that Darin Brown is no longer serving as president of CP+B Europe, a position he’s held for well over three years. From what we’ve been told, Brown actually parted ways with Crispin in January and sources in the know tell us that there will be a new leader in Europe but the role will belong to someone more senior. Prior to CP+B, Brown spent a dozen years at Razorfish, last serving in a similar role as president of the agency’s European operations. During his career, Brown also served on the account side at the likes of Leo Burnett.

In October, CP+B Los Angeles and London took over AOR duties for UK-based betting/e-gaming service Paddy Power. Like our commentariat, we admittedly found this news a little dull. But, we did get to give mention to Paddy Power’s old agency, Big Al’s Creative Emporium, and all of the silly names for the different parties involved in the story were just a little too bizarre to ignore.
Well, as the above TV spot proves, the weirdness isn’t ceasing. As Paddy Power’s brand head Adam Perrin said when Crispin won the business, “We were blown away by the freshness of CP+B’s approach and their use of resource across the United States and Europe.” Was CP+B’s “fresh” idea marketing Paddy Power Bingo’s “Home Free Hotline,” as a way to make a quick escape from romantic encounters gone awry? It certainly seems that way.
