Director of Talent Canfield Returns to GS&P

By Patrick Coffee 

Today we learned, via the old land line, that creative recruiter Zach Canfield has returned to Goodby, Silverstein & Partners for a third stint helping to manage its in-house talent.

Last October, Canfield became one of many industry vets poached by Google when he was hired to serve as the “Don’t Be Evil” company’s global creative recruiting lead.

After approximately six months in that role, he’s back with GS&P.


Canfield has an extensive history within the Goodby organization and rose to the position of associate partner/director of talent before leaving for the Goog (and leaving an impressive, newly redesigned reception area behind).

He chose not to elaborate on the move this afternoon and referred us instead to GS&P’s PR department, but we’ve been unable to reach them for comment.

No word, then, on whether his return had anything to do with the introduction of Goodby’s new leadership team last month or whether working for Google is as great as Silicon Valley and that Vince Vaughan movie make it seem.
