CCO Karen Spiegel Leaves FCB

Karen SpiegelToday we confirmed that Karen Spiegel is now the former Global Chief Communications Officer at FCB (née draftFCB). She recently left the agency after replacing former EVP/GCCO Wally Peterson only nine months ago.

London-based Stephen Martincic, who has been SVP of communications for several years, is her replacement.

Spiegel is not moving to another agency: she’s launching her own consultancy.

She entered the agency world in 2001, beginning a 12-year stint with R/GA during which she became SVP/Managing Director. Longtime readers may recall that Spiegel led former spy Matt Van Hoven on a tour of the shop’s Bauhaus-themed New York office and introduced him to its three-wheeled motorcycle way back in 2009.

No word on the details regarding Spiegel’s new venture; updates as we receive them.
