Team Sprint VP Goldberg Heading Back to Familiar Territory (Updated)

Guess it’s that kind of week, coincidental as it may be. A day after we reported that Digitas EVP/media director Carl Fremont was leaving said agency, sources familiar with the matter has confirmed that Seth Goldberg is also parting ways after spending the last year-plus as VP/group director, brand strategy on Team Sprint out of the Chicago office. Where’s he headed, you ask? Well, interestingly enough, our sources say Draftfcb, where Goldberg spent nearly eight years working in the agency’s Windy City hub as a senior-level exec in the planning/strategy department on accounts including Kmart.

The irony is that just a year ago, Goldberg was named in a poaching lawsuit that Draftfcb filed against Digitas, but guess the hatchet has now been buried. We’re trying to get confirmation along with title/start date for Goldberg from Draft’s end, who prior to said agency, worked on the account side at the likes of Wunderman.

Update: Sources familiar with the matter tell us that Goldberg will indeed be rejoining Draftfcb Chicago, effective April 29, as SVP, group planning director.

Jones, Goldberg Move Up at DFCB Chi, Dehesa-Conde to Move Out

Draftfcb Chicago has promoted long-term staffers Nat Jones and Seth Goldberg to VP, creative director and SVP, group strategic planning director, respectively. Jones (right) is an 11-year DFCB vet, starting out as an art director at what was then FCBi before moving up the ladder to his current post, which calls for him to work on accounts including Sharpie and Boeing among others. During his career, Jones has worked primarily on the interactive side for clients ranging from Kraft to AT&T to Motorola. Goldberg, meanwhile, kicked of his Draft career in 2004 as VP, management director on HP and now works with the likes of Kmart and VW.

While two of its mainstays got the bump-up, DFCB Chicago is about to lose another as sources familiar with the matter confirm that the SVP/GCD Eduardo Dehesa-Conde, who’s led the agency’s multicultural practice for the last five years, will soon be leaving. No word on where he’s headed but we’ve been told that Dehesa-Conde is departing on “good terms.”

Update: We’ve been told just now that Ron D’Innocenzo has also been promoted to VP, creative director at Draft Chi.
