There’s no acrimony with this split it appears as we’ve been told by Deutsch itself that ad vet Cheryl Greene, who’s spent the last three-plus years as partner/director of business initiatives at the IPG-owned agency’s New York office, is preparing to retire from the agency world altogether. A Deutsch NY spokesperson adds and clarifies, “We have been working together to take the steps needed for a smooth transition – for example by reducing hours and client interface. We are happy that we are able to help her ease her way into retirement. We will not be looking to replace her.”
In early 2010, Greene rejoined Deutsch , where she initially spent sixteen years and worked in positions including brand strategy advisor, after a stint as managing partner, director of integrated brand strategies at KBS+.
