Time’s Up Advertising has addressed Adweek’s report that DDB recently hired former Droga5 chief creative officer Ted Royer, who was fired from that agency in February, to work on the Volkswagen pitch. In a statement issued last night, Time’s Up called the resulting controversy an opportunity to “reiterate” its own reason for being.
DDB worldwide CEO Wendy Clark, one of the group’s most visible leaders, also acknowledged making a “mistake” and agreed to step down from the 10-woman Time’s Up steering committee, though she will remain a member of the larger group.
