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 head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
