Well, it appears there were a few conflicting reports coming our way last Friday regarding the state of StrawberryFrog New York, with sources saying there were a handful of staffers cut and the agency itself saying otherwise. So, for the time being, as layoff tips have yet to be confirmed on or off the record, we’ve placed the item on the backburner (though we’re still hearing plenty about how the entire NY office is now working on one floor).
Anyhow, while we wait for some more concrete info on cuts if there is any, the Frogpond in Amsterdam tells us that it’s welcomed a new ECD in Rohan Young, who joins StrawberryFrog from BBDO Paris (CLM BBDO, to be precise), where he’s spent the last few years as creative director. At SF Amsterdam, Young will serve as creative team leader alongside David Warner while also serving as ECD on Emirates Airlines, which is run by Kevin McKeon out of the Frog’s New York office. During his time at BBDO Paris, Young worked on P&G for the EMEA region.
