Linus Karlsson Leaves Mother

It looks like Paul Malmstrom has lost his other half for the time being as his longtime partner-in-crime at Mother NY/fellow Swede Linus Karlsson (pictured) is leaving the agency immediately for what we’ve been told is an “undisclosed location.” We can only assume he’s vying for a gig on Survivor, but all joking aside, Mother NY’s co-founding partner Malmstrom offers this somber comment: “I’ve worked with Linus for 20 years, since our early days back in Sweden. He’s a longtime friend, and we congratulate him on this new move. We will miss Linus, but we’ve built a strong, multi-disciplinary creative leadership team that is centered around our independent, unique way of thinking and the creative we continue to bring to every agency client.”

Fellow founding partner Robert Saville adds, “The industry always seems to turn to Mother when they’re looking for creative leadership,If only we could get a recruiting fee.  Kidding aside, we wish Linus success in whatever role he pursues.  He’ll always be a part of our history, as well as a friend.” We’re still trying to gather the reasons for Karlsson’s departure, but from what our source says, it was “incredibly sudden” and he’s yet to announce where he’s headed just yet.
