Adam Levine Out at Draftfcb NY

It looks like Draftfcb New York is kicking off 2011 by shifting its new business leadership as sources familiar with the matter confirm that Adam Levine (left) is no longer with the agency. Reasons weren’t given for Levine’s departure, but tipsters more or less allege that he was “fired.”

Levine joined Draft NY in May 2009, officially taking on the post of chief growth officer. At the time, then-president of the office, Peter DeNunzio, said the hiring “signals our commitment to growth and taking our model to the next level.” Guess it didn’t quite work out as planned. Before joining Draft, Levine spent nine years working on new business at Deutsch and spent six in account management at DDB Needham.

As for his replacement, we’ve been told that North American new business efforts will now be led by EVP Nick Paul, who Draftfcb named North American director of business development in 2010.
