Here’s a tweet since deleted that can be conjured using a quick Google search: “Feb 20 · Chris Apostle @cgapostle. First day was a great one…Florida and Zimmerman don’t disappoint.” Well, they did apparently, because after just a month, a phone call has confirmed that Chris Apostle is no longer with the Omnicom-owned, Fort Lauderdale-based agency.
No official comment as of yet, but what spies are saying, Apostle joined the agency to run its digital division as well as the social media team, but bounced after he wasn’t left with full control. We’re not naming names as of now, but we’ll let you know that the exec has previously served as managing director, client services at R/GA’s New York hub and has worked at the likes of Razorfish, where he once led the latter’s CPG practice. Zimmerman has yet to comment on the matter. Update: Ok, they “have no comment on the matter at this time.”
