Six months after CRT/tanaka acquired his agency, Livingston Communications, Geoff Livingston has announced he will be moving on to start a new company sometime in 2010.

Livingston has not announced details on the new company, but did say it will include, “deep rooting in social responsibility.” CRT/tanaka said that Priya Ramesh will be filling Geoff’s role in the agency’s DC office, and added that they will also be “looking to bring someone else in.” Livingston will also remain on as a consultant for the foreseeable future.

“In many ways, I felt my job had been accomplished,” Livingston said in a statement. “With Geoff’s assistance and the expertise of our D.C.-based staff, we have substantially enhanced our social media expertise,” said Mike Mulvihill, CRT/tanaka president, adding that he looks forward to continuing working with Livingston as a consultant and “in possible future collaborative efforts.”
