360i CEO Jared Belsky is leaving the company to pursue other opportunities, he and the agency have confirmed.
The agency issued this statement from Jacki Kelley, Dentsu Americas CEO:
“After 12 years with 360i, Jared Belsky has decided to leave dentsu and pursue his own entrepreneurial venture. We are very grateful for his contributions, and know he leaves us with a strong, high-performing leadership team at 360i, which is a key part of the dentsu Americas portfolio. We are confident that 360i’s leadership, including Abbey Klaassen, Menno Kluin, Raig Adolfo, Doug Rozen, Leah Meranus and Bruce Williams, will continue to deliver growth for clients across Media and Creative capabilities.”
As of now, no search is underway for Belsky's successor and Klaassen will continue to lead on creative and integrated business, Kluin continues to oversee creative product, and Adolfo remains the brand strategy lead.
On the Media side, Rozen continues to oversee Dentsu’s Media offering in the US, while Leah Meranus was recently elevated to lead Integrated Media and Bruce Williams to lead Performance Media.
Belsky stated that "After 12 amazing years at 360i, I will be leaving the agency at the end of June to start my own entrepreneurial endeavor. Together with some of the smartest people in the industry, we’ve built an incredible agency brand, culture, product, and company."
Belsky said he would release more on his new venture soon and that through June he'll be focused on a smooth transition at the agency.
