CB hears former Euro RSCG Worldwide Sydney CEO Glen Fraser (top right), who left the agency in December last year, will form a new agency with Dale Rhodes (bottom right), the current Euro Sydney creative director, who is contracted to the agency for another three months. When contacted, Rhodes would not comment, only to say he was at the agency for the next three months and it was business as usual, unless a replacement CD comes on board before then. Asked if he did decide to form a new shop would it be fully integrated (Rhodes has directed commercials before and has a broad set of skills), he replied yes, but stressed a start up would be only one of his options. When contacted, Glen Fraser had no comment, other than saying he was thoroughly enjoying the break from the business.

I'm waiting for the axe to fall. I know it's going to come. I just want to have a fucking great come back line when they hand me the envelope with the cheque in it. I hate this job and hate myself for being trapped inside it.

I realise that having a great name and hair that is permanently whisked is important, but can anyone explain how Mr Rhodes got the Euro gig in the first place? Or Mr Fraser for that matter.

Who were these people?

7:54PM, I'll take your money.

Rhodes' track record last time he went boutique was to change the agency name from a staid Doorley, Chapman, etc. to "Aorta".

Not a great name, but not a bunch of other people's names either.

If they do do it, good luck to them. I suspect the comment above is from some of the dead wood they had to clear out of the creative department when they first arrived.

As usual, you bozo's don't get that Cannes Gold Lions aren't REALLY gold....they are a means to keep you idiots contributing to a publicly listed company and a reason to keep juniors like you,,yes, you...getting mad and worked up about awards while the bosses sweep in the millions.

How is it that you people never ever get it?

Warrren has a nice house..you seen the Glue Boys property portfolio.......NO, that's just the point....

silly little people.

The worst thing in life is to go to work for money.

We spend a lot of time working, so we may as well enjoy it, which I'm sure the Glue boys do.

I'd rather have a happy life, not be the richest dead man in the cementry.

I think Martin Sorrell wrote the blogg at 8.34, if not him Singo or Russell Tate or Peter Clemenger.
"It's not about money" is just a way of keep slaves on the plantation while 'massah' dives into swimming pools of moolah like Scrooge McDuck.

It's all about the money stupid. This is the most capitalist of all businesses. You can love your work and do great things and still make the money. In fact you should. By the time you're 40 someone cheaper is going to come along and take your job. You'd better have something to fall back on.

All the metal in the world aint going to keep you warm in the winter days of your advertising career.
