Freestyle Interactive Director Leaves

NEW YORK Freestyle Interactive managing director Andy Tress said he is leaving the Aegis Group agency for a job at Yahoo.

Tress is wrapping up work at the agency today in advance of joining Yahoo’s West Coast sales team on Oct. 17. He is the second head of Freestyle Interactive to leave in the past month, following the departure of founder Karim Sanjabi in August to pursue opportunities outside of the advertising industry.

Sarah Fay, president of Aegis Group’s Isobar U.S. digital network, said the departures of Sanjabi and Tress, who had been with the agency five years, were “kind of the end of an era.” She said Aegis would name a new Freestyle Interactive managing director shortly.

Freestyle Interactive, which has about 30 employees, does work for Electronic Arts, Dolby and Logitech. Freestyle Interactive, Carat Fusion, SEM iProspect and Web shop Molecular make up Aegis Group’s Isobar U.S. digital network.
