Well, there are more changes on the MRM front to be had according to those in the know. Less than a week after undergoing various leadership shifts, including Bill Kolb’s promotion as well as an alignment and changing of the guard in its West Coast operations, we’ve received confirmation from sources familiar with the matter confirm that Mark Singer and MRM have parted ways. Singer (pictured), who originally joined MRM in December 2008 as SVP/account director on the U.S. Army account, eventually moved up the ladder to serve as EVP/general manager at the agency’s New York hub.
From what we’ve been told by our sources, MRM worldwide president Michael McLaren will absorb Singer’s responsibilities for the time being, but there will be an eventual replacement for the latter exec (no timetable set yet, though). Prior to McCann/MRM, Singer spent nearly two years as SVP/senior partner at Ogilvy on American Express. Update: Sources add that Singer left June 3 after a long transition period” to go back into management consulting as a partner at Deloitte, where he had a previous five-year run as senior manager.
