GlobalHue Parts Ways with Laura Marella

By Kiran Aditham Comment


GlobalHue has confirmed that vice-chairman Laura Marella, who was brought on nearly three years ago to lead all of GH Latino’s Hispanic business, is no longer with the agency as of this week.

We’ve been told that the split was mutual and that Marella’s bi-coastal living/traveling was an issue with GlobalHue as the agency wanted a leader in the office full-time. From what we’re hearing, via spies, GlobalHue chief Don Coleman is also taking over as GM of GH, but we’re still waiting for official confirmation on this.

Update:: We’ve been told by credible sources that MRM alum Michael Jacobs, GlobalHue’s ECD of digital, will be leading “a lot” of the agency’s business moving forward. We also have a note from Coleman that was sent out to staff yesterday after the jump.

“I have always known that every single person at GlobalHue is a very important part of our team. You each bring your diverse skill sets and dedication every day, and that makes this agency stronger and better able to serve its clients. Thank you for your continued efforts and for always rising to the challenge. I am interested in having the opportunity to meet individually with each of you and I will be scheduling these meetings over the next several months.

Expect to hear more information about the new structure from your direct managers and leaders over the next week. We will also be having company-wide meetings to provide you with details about the new structure and the other initiatives the company is currently focusing on.

Thank you again for your hard work and dedication. Have a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend (and, if workload permits and your manager approves, feel free to start your holiday early and leave today at 2PM).

Best Regards,
Don Coleman”
