After 14 years of service at Austin-based, Omnicom-owned GSD&M, we’ve received confirmation that Galen Adams is leaving for a client-side gig. From what he hear, Adams, who most recently served as sports buying director at the agency, is leaving for a
chief marketing officer gig as director of marketing and sponsorships at a salon chain called, you guessed it, Sport Clips. We’ve been told that the parting is amicable and it appears to be true in this case as GSD&M will continue to be able to work with Adams and tells us that it’s “flattering for a client/brand to ask anyone to move over.” We’ve been told that this week is his last at GSD&M. During his time, Adams helped run their sponsorship program among other things.
