Sources familiar with the matter confirm that Liz Kane has resigned from Draftfcb New York after spending 18 months at the agency as SVP, group strategic planning director. Kane’s departure comes just two weeks after that of Tim Queenan, who left for a director of strategy post at Google Creative Lab. Anyhow, we’ve been told Kane’s last day is June 11 and she will be heading to Saatchi & Saatchi.
Coincidentally, eight-year Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness vet Sarah Hall (pictured) will be joining Draft New York on the same day as EVP, group management director. During her time at Saatchi, Hall served as SVP, group account director on accounts ranging from Durex to Ambien.
