Marian Salzman, the woman who is named in almost every press release that JWT sends out, has left the agency. Marian was the worldwide chief marketing officer at the agency, but has bailed to become a partner at public relations agency Porter Novelli. Nice move and congrats Marian.
CEO Bob Jeffrey sent out an email today confirming her departure. We’d love to see it! Please forward to us? Please? (agencyspy at mediabistro dot com).
Salzman made a fast rise at JWT. She was first a consultant and then joined the agency as the director of strategic content (doesn’t that sound like a made up title?) in 2005. By early February 2006, she was CMO. Apparently, the lady is a powerhouse. Her Facebook page reads like a who’s who of the biz. Stand back ladies and gentlemen. The lady is on a roll.[source]
