Bittman, Anomaly Part Ways

We’ve received confirmation that Benjamin Bittman, who’s spent approximately three years serving as digital development director at Anomaly, has left the agency. From what we’ve been told, Bittman is taking some time off and heading to Italy. According to those in the know, the parting of ways is an amicable one as we’ve been told that Bittman “did an outstanding job” and “as he was a unique talent and the digital space is constantly changing,” Anomaly is reviewing its next steps in terms of replacement plans. During his career, the 15-year ad vet had a lengthy stint on the marketing side at TBWA\Worldwide and had a relatively brief stint as EVP/chief marketing officer at Saatchi & Saatchi New York.

Bittman’s departure, while unrelated, follows those of Ian Daly and Chris Rorie, who served as head of planning and head of data and strategic analysis, respectively, at Anomaly New York.
