It appears that the finance and tech departments at Ogilvy & Mather’s digital media/performance marketing network Neo@Ogilvy did take a slight hit this week. Sources familiar with the matter confirm that said division did part ways with higher-ups including finance director, North America Dan Berman, partner/technology officer Antonio Fraser and director of advertising technology, O’Neill Stanleigh. No official reason was given, but spies allege that account losses played a part in the trimming–though camp Ogilvy says it’s recently hired up to 70 people. All three were based in the New York office, which is reporting no other losses in the Neo@Ogilvy unit.
Berman had served in his post for two-and-a-half years and previously worked as a CFO under the IPG umbrella, Fraser (pictured) spent nearly five years at Neo@Ogilvy and once held an SVP post at Digitas while Stanleigh spent five years as well at Neo and held posts at the likes of OMD during his career.
