Andy Murray Out at Saatchi & Saatchi X

If his LinkedIn wasn’t enough to confirm it, a phone call cemented the fact that Saatchi & Saatchi X chairman Andy Murray is no longer with the agency that he helped found nearly 12 years ago. Spies are claiming that Murray was “ousted” from his post (though his name and frame are still on the agency’s worldwide creative board page) and that we can expect more management transitions at X in the near future. But anyhow, it appears that Murray is now turning his attention to his Arkansas-based “entrepreneurial technology incubator” dubbed Mercury11.

In 2010, Murray was replaced by Walmart alum Dina Howell as CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi X, the shopper marketing divisi0n which was formerly known as Thompson Murray until it was acquired and re-branded by “The Lovemarks Company” in 2004.
