We Hear: Krinsky In or Out at Hoffman/Lewis?

Lordy, we hate the suspense and we really would like to do less of these come new year (though most of them have been proven to be true). Anyhow, we’ve received several tips regarding the status of one Sharon Krinsky, who has pretty much spent the majority of her advertising career (20+ years) at San Francisco agency, Hoffman/Lewis, led by the “Ad Contrarian” himself, Bob Hoffman. We’ve been led to nothing but voicemails and dead ends when it comes to emails to the agency’s higher-ups, but tipsters allege that the indie shop parted ways with Krinsky last week.

The exec joined the agency as a junior copywriter in 1991, moving up the charts to creative director to ECD/EVP and eventually president/chief creative officer in 2007. Hopefully all is well in Hoffman/Lewis land as we head into the holidays, but either way, we’ll keep you posted. Give us a shout if you know more.
