Everyone Reports To Someone

Fallon is under new leadership, but that doesn’t mean famously combative, Pat Fallon, has to like it.
“This is certainly not how I would script it,” 62-year-old Mr. Fallon said.
Referring to his agency’s new boss, Fallon said, “Kevin has ‘Lovemarked’ his way into clients. We’ve been saying that we’d rather outsmart the competition than outspend them for 26 years, but we’ve never taken the time and energy to promote it the way Kevin has. He’s turned it into a new-business machine, and you have to tip your hat to that.”
Begrudging respect aside, Chuck Porter of Crispin Porter & Bogusky, a lifelong friend of Mr. Fallon, said, “I don’t care what the organizational chart says, Pat doesn’t report to anyone.”
