Nearly a year to the day that Havas Chicago (well, Euro RSCG Chicago at the time) welcomed executive creative director Tyler DeAngelo to the fold, sources familiar with the matter confirm that the creative exec has parted ways with the agency. During his time with the agency, DeAngelo worked on accounts ranging from PlayStation to Jim Beam to Michelob Ultra.
From what we’ve been told, DeAngelo is moving back to NYC, where he spent five years as integrated CD at DeVito/Verdi and also served as an instructor at Miami Ad School’s Brooklyn branch. We’re hearing DeAngelo might not be the only ECD departure from Havas, but we’ll keep you posted if we find out more. Prior to Havas, DeAngelo served as partner/creative director at digital prodco Modern Publicity and had a two-year stint on the creative side at Grey NY. Lest we forget, he’s also the mastermind behind “Fifth Avenue Frogger” (see below).
