Here’s a Quick Update on Engine Company 1

On Monday, we reported about the leadership situation at Engine Company 1, which did indeed lose partners Wayne Buder and Vince Engel, though their departures weren’t as dramatic as some have been alleging. Yesterday, we received some clarification on the matter from the San Francisco agency’s partner/CD Scott Aal (pictured, left) who tells us that the Buder (pictured, right), who last served as partner/president, left “of his own volition” and that “his decision to pursue other business interests was based on his own personal and professional desires.” You might recall from our earlier post that Buder’s desire right now is to serve as a “business therapist.”

As for Engel, who served as partner/creative director alongside Aal, the latter fills us in on the fact that he actually left his post last fall after accepting an offer to help run the advertising program at Academy of Art–though he still continues to consult with Engine Co. 1 on “two significant pieces of business.” We’ll check on what two exactly (Update: Monterey Bay Aquarium and the San Francisco 49ers). Aal adds, “We are indebted to both Vince and Wayne for the enormous roles they played in the founding of Engine Company 1, for the agency’s success over the past 3.5 years, and in particular for their efforts in 2012 even as they were contemplating career moves; in fact, 2012 was EC1′s healthiest year yet.  Wayne and Vince will be missed.”

SF’s Engine Company 1 Begins 2013 Minus a Partner or Two

From what we’ve been told by spies, San Francisco-based agency Engine Company 1 made the decision during the holidays to let go of president/partner Wayne Buder and creative director/partner Vince Engel (pictured, l-r). While both are still listed on the agency’s People page, Buder has already updated his status to reflect that he’s no longer with the agency as he’s now listing himself as a “business therapist.” Engel, meanwhile, has yet to do the same and calls to Engine Co. 1 regarding his status have been left unanswered thus far.

Engine Company 1, which has worked with the likes of the San Francisco 49ers, Pacific Life, Doc Martens and EVault, was formed in 2009 when Buder and Engel’s own shop called, of course, BuderEngel, merged with Grant Scott and Associates. Buder and Engel’s time together dates back well over a decade, when the pair worked together at Leagas Delaney’s San Francisco office as managing director and CD, respectively. Buder has also logged time on the operations/account side at the likes of Y&R, Doner and FCB’s Technology group during his 30+ year career while Engel has served as a CD at Lowe and basically spent the entire 90′s serving as a creative at W+K . We’ll keep you posted on the latter’s status if and when we find out more.
