Y&R Gcd Siegel Exits Shop

Rich Siegel, group creative director on Jaguar at WPP’s Young & Rubicam in Irvine, Calif., last week said he has left the shop to “pursue book publishing and possibly more Hollywood projects.” Siegel, co-executive producer of the 2001 film Home Movie and story writer for 1992’s Stay Tuned, joined the agency in 2002. Before that, he had stints at the Southern California offices of Omnicom’s TBWA\Chiat\Day and BBDO and Publicis’ Team One.
