Global CDO Livingston Leaving mcgarrybowen

Doug LivingstonWe’ve confirmed that Doug Livingston, Global Chief Digital Officer at mcgarrybowen, will be leaving the agency at the end of this week.

Livingston previously left his position as EVP/director of digital integration at Grey NY to join mcgarry just over a year ago; the agency will not re-fill his role but does reportedly have plans for succession in place.

Livingston’s career includes more than two decades of work (including six years overseeing digital biz dev at Grey) for a wide variety of clients; he’s been involved in campaigns that earned Cannes Lions, CLIOs and Facebook Studio Awards. The agency has no word on where he’s headed next or what those aforementioned plans mean for the immediate future.

Email to staff from co-founder/owner Gordon Bowen after the jump.

To that end, and after much discussion on our next evolution, I am saddened to share that Doug Livingston will be leaving mcgarrybowen at the end of this month to pursue other interests.

Indeed, as our Chief Digital Officer, Doug has accomplished A LOT in his time at our agency—from securing some of the industry’s best talent, exploring new digital horizons, and increasing the level of integration across all disciplines at mb. On behalf of all of us at mcgarrybowen, I want to thank Doug for his contributions over the last year and wish him the best of luck on his next journey.
