Well, This is News to Us: Bastholm Leaves Cheil USA? (Update: Yes)

We wish you well, Lars, if your tweet is to be believed (can you really blame him?). From what you see above, one can easily deduce that Lars Bashtolm, who joined Cheil USA as chief creative officer just a year ago, is leaving for the West Coast. The tweet says it all but we’re following up with Cheil to see what’s what and what’s next for the agency in the wake of their top U.S. creative’s departure. Bastholm, of course, spent about the same amount of time as CCO at Ogilvy NY and has also ran the creative department at AKQA during his career. We’ll keep you posted as things develop.
