We’ve received multiple tips over the last 24 hours that Publicis Modem president Dani Nadel is stepping down. From what we hear, Nadel’s last day is today and she’s heading to Scholastic, though we’re checking with all parties on this matter. Nadel has been part of the Modem mix for six years, and has served as president for nearly four, seeing the agency through its transition from Modem Media to Publicis Modem in 2007. Prior to that, she spent 15 years at Digitas, which was the parent company at Modem Media and where she help posts including SVP, relationship lead. Direct inquiries to Nadel have gone unanswered, but we’ll let you know when we get more clarification on the matter.
Update: Nadel is in fact leaving Publicis Modem and moving on. Here’s a statement from the agency: “Dani has taken a position at Scholastic. She has been a great team player over the years, and we wish her well as she moves to the client side. This is a perfect position for Dani, it plays on all her strengths. As we bring Publicis NY and Publicis Modem NY operationally together, the regional role Dani had will no longer be needed.”
