Soul Searching Gets No Respect At Ad Age

Ad Age is treating GSD&M CEO, Roy Spence, unkindly.
Exhibit A, this headline:

The trade mag feels that Spence’s walkabout at a time of massive layoffs at the agency is “a publicity stunt whose timing couldn’t be worse and whose true purpose was never really clear.”
What’s the deal?
A man can’t walk?

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am now head of brand strategy and creative direction at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
