AKQA international executive creative director Duan Evans has resigned from the agency following a recent suspension.
“Duan Evans resigned with immediate effect during a disciplinary process and while he was suspended from the business,” an AKQA spokesperson told Adweek.
While the agency declined to elaborate beyond the statement provided, reliable sources told Adweek that Evans had been suspended several weeks prior to his official resignation. The nature of the disciplinary process cited in the agency’s statement are unclear at this time.
An AKQA spokesperson declined to specify whether Evans would receive any financial compensation as part of his resignation, adding that AKQA had no additional comment at this time, but standard practice prevents a resigning executive from receiving such severance packages.
