While riding high off of ads including “Susan Glenn” and the whole hair-meeting-breasts love story, BBH New York has lost its general manager and longtime agency vet, Joe Da Silva. Here’s a quick statement from the BBH camp below:
“After 22 great years, BBH General Manager Joe Da Silva has decided to depart the agency to pursue exciting new opportunities. Joe has been a fantastic and much-loved member of the BBH family, both here and in London, for many many years – a friend as well as a colleague to many of us in the agency. We obviously wish him the very best and know that he will be a great success in whatever new path he chooses to pursue.”
Sources familiar with the matter add that Da Silva is moving not only positions professionally but locations geographically, and has a new job lined up. Unfortunately, we’ve been told that the exec can’t share any details on but he said it will be announced in the near future.
