SpyWriter first reported on the possibility of RMG Connect CCO Martin McDonald stepping down last week. Well a tipster tells us he has indeed resigned. Check out this article from March, which has a bit more to say about the state of things at RMG.
This isn’t the first high-ranking official to walk away from RMG in recent months, as you’ll read.
“Linda Jackson seemingly took a big step down in her career arc to leave London last month and take over as the new General Director of OgilvyOne Mexico (her predecessor at RMG, Nelly Andersen, left RMG to return to her prior place of employment, OgilvyOne, back in October 2006 and is now an EVP, Global Brands at OgilvyOne Worldwide out of the London office.)
RMG Connect, particularly in the London office, has had mass defections of both staff & clients prior to, and during, Jackson’s reign at the shop — so perhaps it is not a massive surprise.”
