Over at Publicis' MRY, Chief Creative Officer David Weinstock and Executive Creative Director Leo Leone are leaving the agency. Neither knew the other was leaving until they each gave notice to the other. That's gotta be weird.
Of the two executives exiting the agency, MRY Chief Marketing Officer David Berkowitz said: “We’re all really fortunate to have worked with them during their long tenure here and we will be drawing on our deep creative bench for leading the team going forward notably James Wood, who joined us two years ago and will be taking the helm of the group.”
Weinstock came to MRY six years ago from Euro RSCG. Leone came to MRY in 2013 after having spent time at Fallon, DDB and DigitasLBi.
Others may be leaving the agency as well -- but nothing is confirmed, and Berkowitz said any other exits are just normal agency attrition.
