From what tipsters tell us, Tuesday wasn’t a good day for John Pucci, who had spent the last two years as executive creative director at Euro RSCG Edge. According to them, Pucci “got into an argument in a meeting…and stormed out and immediately quit.”
While we were unable to verify that, the Euro camp sent us this statement: “Over the past two years the agency has invested a tremendous amount of time and energy in working with John to leverage his advertising and marketing skills and focus them into the direct response industry that we know and love. Ultimately, John believed that this fit was not going to happen and has decided to move on. We wish him well and in the interim.”
The L.A.-based creative joined Euro RSCG Edge from RAPP, where he was SVP/ECD of brand integration. Prior to that, he spent two years as an SVP/ECD at Publicis Dialog and also held management positions at DDB and Tracy Locke.
