Scheppach Leaves Publicis, Strikes Out On Her Own

Another top female executive is leaving Publicis Media. Tracey Scheppach, a long-time head of innovation at Publicis’ Starcom unit and most recently executive vice president of Publicis Media, announced she is leaving in a post on Facebook late Friday.

The post did not say where she is going, but indicated she is striking out on her own:

“With the confidence Publicis gave me, it is time to spread my entrepreneurial wings,” she wrote, adding that “Monday begins a new chapter.”

Scheppach that who joined Starcom in 2005 after a stint and interactive TV developer Wink, has been responsible for the agency’s video innovation work and it is expected that her new venture will be in that field.

Scheppach’s disclosure comes a day after another senior female executive, Laura Desmond, announced she will officially leave Publicis Media at the end of the year.
