Today we can confirm that Eric Springer is no longer serving as chief creative officer at FCB/West.
Springer, who like former Deutsch colleague David Povill gained attention thanks to his work on the VW Super Bowl spot from 2011, left that agency’s LA office to serve as CCO at Culver City shop Pitch back in January 2012. After spending approximately one year there, he was hired by FBC/West (then DraftFCB West) to fill the EVP/CCO role.
During the one year and nine months he spent at FCB, Springer produced work for clients like Taco Bell, Levi’s and Nabi, maker of child-friendly tablets.
We have no word on the reasons for his departure or his future plans; we only know that, in the words of an agency spokesperson, “a search for his successor is underway.”
