Here’s Some Quick Clarification on MRY Creative Leadership

cedricdevittWe’ve received a few tips this morning regarding the status of MRY’s creative heads, namely CCO Cedric Devitt and ECD, David Weinstock. From what we’ve been hearing through the Spy line, the former was out and the latter was in as creative chief at the agency, but alas, this appears to be far from the truth. Official word just came down from MRY that both Devitt and Weinstock are continuing their roles in leading the creative team at MRY. According to the agency, “MRY is thrilled with both of them, and both are thrilled with MRY. There is no truth at all to any rumor that Cedric is going anywhere.”

Devitt (pictured) has been with the agency as a creative head since the pre-LBi/MRY merger days back in late 2009 while Weinstock has served as ECD at MRY for three years.
