Paul Newman, the former eBay comms VP who joined MSLGroup last March as president of its North American operations, has stepped down effective immediately.
Here is the internal memo that went out today, written–we presume–by Publicis Worldwide President Arthur Sadoun:
MSLGROUP MEMO: In order to be closer to his family that is based in Boston, Paul Newman, President of North America, has decided to leave the company. His last day is today, August 3. Peter Miller will serve as interim President until a new leadership plan is announced for North America.
