From the Looks of It, John McVay, Razorfish Part Ways

By Kiran Aditham 

After spending eight years at Razorfish, it appears that John McVay (pictured) is leaving the agency’s Atlanta office according to a memo sent from president Shannon Denton. McVay has spent the last four years as managing director of Razorfish’s ATL digs. We’re checking into see where the departing exec is headed to next, but feel free to read Denton’s memo below, verbatim:

“From: Shannon Denton
To: Everyone – Razorfish Atlanta

Hi Atlanta Fish,
I wanted to let you know that John McVay has decided to leave Razorfish.


John has clearly been instrumental in building the Atlanta office, developing great client relationships and contributing in many other areas across Razorfish and the Central Region.   Please join me in wishing him the best of luck going forward.   He will certainly be missed.

Over the next several weeks, I will be working with John, Atlanta office leadership and the Central Region leadership team to transition key clients and other responsibilities as appropriate.

It is natural for some to feel concern when someone like John leaves.  However, we have a tremendously talented team & leadership in Atlanta, do phenomenal work and are blessed with great client relationships.  And fundamental to Razorfish’s great history and culture is how we achieve even greater levels during times of change.

Going forward, I am very confident in our ability to continue to grow Razorfish Atlanta, build careers for Atlanta Fish, deliver great work and delight our clients.

Thank you,
