Dave Moore Out at McCann

Sources familiar with the matter have confirmed to us that Dave Moore, EVP/ECD at McCann New York, is out at the agency. From what we’ve been told, the split was “amicable.” During his tenure, Moore led creative efforts for McCann NY clients such as Applebee’s as well as global accounts including Exxon Mobil, J&J and Bertolli.

Of course, Moore is no stranger to the McCann camp, having spent seven years (2000-2007) as ECD then CCO in the agency’s Detroit office, where he spearheaded GM’s “Keep America Rolling” campaign that launched post-9/11 as well as Tiger Woods/Buick web efforts. Moore’s last gig at McCann actually marked his second stint in the New York office, as he previously served as a GCD there before heading to Detroit. We’re still finding out where Moore’s headed to next.

Update: Moore’s future plans remain a bit vague as we’ve been told that he’s not starting a new job right away.

Update 2: Moore is headed to Avrett Free Ginsberg, title yet to be determined.
