We’ve received confirmation that Lynn Power, who most recently served as president of ArnoldNYC, has resigned from the agency. In a statement, the Arnold camp says, “Lynn Power will be departing Arnold later this summer to pursue new challenges. We are grateful for the many contributions Lynn has made, and wish her great success in the future.” Sources in the know, meanwhile, add that the move was expected as she wasn’t the right fit for the role.
Power spent eight years in all at ArnoldNYC. As for a her replacement in the New York office, Arnold is expected to announce a successor in the coming weeks, but in the interim, Power’s responsibilities will fold under Arnold Worldwide CEO, Robert LePlae. Prior to Arnold, Power had stints on the account side at the likes of Grey, McCann and O&M. One tipster chimes in that the exec was “loved by clients and troops and NY has grown significantly under her watch.”
