McCann NY CFO Leaving for Culinary ‘Dream Job’

By Kiran Aditham Comment

We’re hearing it’s all good, complete with XO’s, and considering his background, we can understand why he’s leaving. But yes, sources familiar with the matter have confirmed that Larry Fish, who’s spent the last two years serving as chief financial officer at McCann Erickson NY, will soon be parting ways with the agency to serve as president of Brooklyn-based chain, Financier Patisserie. We’ve been told by those in the know that this is Fish’s “dream job” and considering that he’s also served as adjunct professor at the French Culinary Institute for several years (and while holding down his day job as McCann NY in the last two), consider us less than shocked.

Sources say that Fish will stick around at McCann until mid-June to ensure a “smooth transition.” Prior to his most recent CFO gig, the exec held similar positions at the likes of Naked Communications.
