We’ve heard from sources that Dentsu America CEO Will Travis was let go by the agency this week. No specifics were given, but his departure comes just two weeks after creative director Paul Laffy left the agency. If you remember, Travis recently went on a 3,500-mile bike race through the Andes and documented his adventures for AgencySpy.
The now-former chief exec spent the last year-plus as CEO and nearly two-and-a-half years in total at Dentsu. Prior to that, he was at ATTIK for just about a decade. Well, I guess now we know why our proposed drinks meetup never came to fruition.
