Today we confirmed that Karen Spiegel is now the former Global Chief Communications Officer at FCB (née draftFCB). She recently left the agency after replacing former EVP/GCCO Wally Peterson only nine months ago.
London-based Stephen Martincic, who has been SVP of communications for several years, is her replacement.
Spiegel is not moving to another agency: she’s launching her own consultancy.
She entered the agency world in 2001, beginning a 12-year stint with R/GA during which she became SVP/Managing Director. Longtime readers may recall that Spiegel led former spy Matt Van Hoven on a tour of the shop’s Bauhaus-themed New York office and introduced him to its three-wheeled motorcycle way back in 2009.
No word on the details regarding Spiegel’s new venture; updates as we receive them.
