Havas Discovery Parts Ways with MD

We’ve received confirmation that Havas Discovery, a network with a handful of offices ranging from Baltimore to Toronto, has parted ways with managing director Chris Oliver, who had served head of the agency’s CRM practice for three years. Oliver was based out of the Baltimore office of Discovery, which serves as the data, analytics, digital and CRM arm of the holding company that has worked with past and present clients including Chase, Sonic and Liberty Mutual.

Prior to his most recent gig, Oliver spent several years as a client partner at what was EHS 4D and worked as account director at TBWA\Tequila for nearly five years before that. No word yet on a replacement for Oliver at Havas Discovery, which recently promoted current president Paul Marobella to a larger role as group president, a title that now calls for him to also oversee ops at experiential agency Havas Impact and brand agency, Palm + Havas.
