The rumour mill is running hot that David Nobay may be about to get his Mojo back with a global chief creative officer role with Publicis.

Those in the know say replacing the departed Grant Rutherford at Publicis Mojo in Sydney would not be the sort of move the Droga5 Sydney founder and former star at Saatchi & Saatchi in Sydney would be interested in.

However, a global role with Publicis would be a coup for both, with Nobay having strong relationships within Publicis stemming back to his days at Saatchi.

Dr Mumbo’s sources note Nobby has spent some time en Paris in the past few weeks – but was he mixing business with pleasure?

If such a move is real, there would be a certain level of irony in Nobay taking on the role first filled by Droga5 founder David Droga back in 2002 when he was named global chief creative officer of Publicis.
