When the new Erwin Penland building currently under construction is completed in September, it just might be a sort of musical chairs for downtown office space as several tenants are planning to relocate their existing offices to the new building.
Joe Saracino describes his decision to leave Erwin Penland just two months after taking over the reins as president as “bittersweet.” In a statement to UBJ, Saracino said he had “loved this agency (Erwin Penland) for a long time – even before joining it.”
Although dirt has been moving for several months, yesterday an official groundbreaking ceremony was held for the new Erwin Penland 360 building as construction begins on the first structure: a five-story, 635-space public parking deck.
Erwin Penland’s new hires at the top of its creative team hail from global advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi. The agency announced last week that it appointed Con Williamson as chief creative officer. John Cornette was named senior vice president and executive creative director.
