We Hear: Apelbaum Out at StrawberryFrog

The saga continues at the Frogpond it appears. Barely a week after account director Jacob Baldridge made his exit, we’ve been told by reliable sources that Suzana Apelbaum, who served as a digital executive creative director at StrawberryFrog, resigned from the agency yesterday. Apelbaum had been with SF for 15 months.

The creative kickstarted her career in Brazil, starting as a copywriter in Rio de Janeiro and then serving as creative director at shops like AgenciaClick, JWT and Africa Propaganda. She eventually moved on to become partner/CCO at Hello Interactive and then Rede, though it looks like she only spent seven months at the last shop.

On the plus side at StrawberryFrog we suppose, it looks like the agency might have found a replacement for Sophie Kelly, who left in April. Our sources tell us that Melinda Eskell, who has been serving as managing director of the agency’s Amsterdam ops since last October, is now also MD of New York.
