Desir, Digitas Part Ways After Barely Four Months

We’re not sure what went wrong here, but as those in know tell us, “some unions just don’t work out.” Just months after joining Digitas New York (alongside Doug Speidel) as VP/group director, head of experience design, sources familiar with the matter confirm that Fritz Desir and the agency are parting ways. Desir, who our sources describe as a “good man” and “smart” (well, we guess the latter has to be somewhat true considering his position), has also worked in similar positions at RAPP as CD, experience design and at Tribal DDB as director, strategy experience & architecture. No word yet on the exact reason for the split or where Desir’s headed to next, but perhaps the opening line of this post explains it.
