Is Roger Makak stepping into the role?

Steve said:

Wow, I didn't think Andy would ever leave.
Shame the whole network imploded creatively and lost all that great talent but I think that is due more to worldwide management than to Andy.
Good luck for the future.

Andy back to O&M...?

All is forgiven said:

Yes Nostradamus this now looks likely and a good move all-round, although talk was that Calvin was the frontrunner.

James Steward said:

Calvin Soh? Would be an amazing story given he started his O&M career as a traffic.

Andy working for Khai...seriously doubt it? Calvin?....maybe, but he's just set up 99%....closing it now would look like a half-assed move... then again, maybe he should because his recent failed pitch for BMW shows that without the backing of a big agency he's not really all that. Tough choices for Cheong....

And a bigger lesson for agency heads....when you promote scam you're promoting your own demise because after winning all those awards the creatives are gonna just take off for higher pay, leaving behind clients who are super pissed that the agency fared poorly on the real work and focused on more self-serving interests.

Interesting times indeed.

If it's not Andy who could do it?

Calvin? Joji? Guan Hin?

insider said:

He is not going back to Ogilvy, how could he work for Khai who is infinitely inferior to him.

Juan said:

I vote Guan...he's the GREATEST!

Steve Elrick said:

Andy said:

Fuck it Steve-O...let's open a bar.

billy bob. said:

Hey Andy, why don't you hook up with your good mate Dean Taylor and see how it goes? Should be fun, right?

Steve Elrick said:

Why not. (well I could think of many reasons.... but....)

Andy said:

...a go-go bar Steve-O.

Old Expat Creative Directors opening a bar? How cliched.
