Digitas Parts Ways with Media Exec

Digitas’ Stamford, CT branch is out one exec as of late as we’ve received confirmation that Melina Usher is no longer with the agency. Who’s that, you ask? Well, Usher, who Digitas parted ways with late last week according to those in the know, spent the last five years in the Stamford office as VP/director, media. Spies are telling us that Usher’s departure was less than amicable, but we’re still looking into that. A 15-year agency vet, Usher spent time on the comms and media side at the likes of Saatchi & Saatchi, Euro RSCG and Initiative prior to joining Digitas.
