The expansive New York outpost of global advertising firm Anomaly spans several bustling floors inside a classic building in the Soho neighborhood. The steady stream of activity on the city streets is matched by the intensity of focus in the office, where Mike Byrne stands out with his warm, affable demeanor. Quick to offer a joke, he doesn’t seem like the same man who has won multiple awards from Clios to Cannes Gold Lions, and who has wowed everyone from the top executives at Nike to Jerry Seinfeld.
