Get Smart (to San Fran)

The feverish adland rumour mill continues to turn and it appears Colenso BBDO CEO Brent Smart is the latest reshuffle in an increasingly long line of recent industry reshufflings.

Fastline reported today that Smart is set to be transferred to BBDO in the US. And Campaign Brief specified he would head the BBDO offices in San Francisco.

StopPress was unable to get hold of the man himself, but he was taking a diplomatic, appropriately US-style approach and neither confirmed or denied the rumours when asked by Fastline.

One Colenso insider had not heard anything about Smart's supposed relocation, but Smart told Fastline there would be an official announcement on Friday.

Our breath, until then, is officially bated.
