Alexander to Succeed Norman as Martin Agency Creative Boss

So, what started as a sabbatical is becoming a complete departure as the Martin Agency has confirmed that it’s officially parting ways with chief creative officer John Norman at month’s end. While no new CCO will be appointed at this point, we’ve been told that Joe Alexander (pictured), a two-decade Martin vet who was promoted to executive creative director a few months ago, will take over as the creative lead across accounts at the Richmond, VA-based agency once Norman’s departure is complete. No word on what lies ahead for Norman, who joined Martin Agency two-and-a-half years ago from W+K Amsterdam, but we’ve been told the agency “wishes him the best” and adds that the departure was “amicable.”
