Dreveny Out at Leo

Sources familiar with the matter confirm that Leo Burnett vet Bob Dreveny is no longer with the agency. Dreveny, who tipsters say “was one of the good guys,” served as EVP, worldwide creative head, global brands for the last five years at Leo’s Chicago hub. We are unclear of the circumstances behind Dreveny’s departure, but we’re hearing it was Leo that made the decision to part ways with the exec.

Dreveny actually had two stints at Leo Burnett, the first being a VP/ECD role at the network’s Hong Kong office. In between his two tours of duty, Dreveny spent a few years as VP/ECD during the late 90′s/early aughts at what was then Foote Cone & Belding.
