Paul Stechschulte Out at Pereira & O’Dell


By Kiran Aditham Comment

Sources familiar with the matter confirm that Pereira & O’Dell executive creative director Paul Stechschulte is out at the SF-based shop after only a few months.

Stechschulte joined P&O’D just before Thanksgiving from Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, where he was a GCD and worked on Emmy-nominated campaigns for Sprint/Nextel among others. The creative also had stints at CP+B, 180 Amsterdam and W+K Amsterdam during his career. From what our spies are telling us, Pereira & O’Dell wasn’t the right environment for Stechschulte (meaning: it’s a smaller agency) and his behavior was becoming an issue there, which probably explains his rather brief stay.
