Two Top Execs Leave Deutsch. What’s The Big Idea?

From Adweek:

Deutsch said it is parting ways with two of its longtime top executives: chief creative officer Kathy Delaney and director of account planning Jeffrey Wolf, who are leaving to “pursue other interests.”
The New York agency is believed to be interviewing a shortlist of candidates to replace both executives.
The moves come after Deutsch, known for the long tenure of its top executives, suffered a series of large account losses beginning in 2004 and continuing through much of last year.
In a statement, Deutsch CEO Linda Sawyer said, “We respect their decision to pursue other interests and will miss them both.”

And in an unrelated statement, Donny Deutsch said, “Somebody, PLEASE watch my TV show.”

  1. Funny, I actually watched Donny’s show for the first time last night. Well, I watched 10 minutes, but just because I wanted to hear what Chris Matthews had to say.
