As noted above, we’ve just obtained the memo from sources regarding a changing of the guards on the business development side at Draftfcb Chicago. After spending a decade at said agency, most recently serving as VP/biz dev director, Jamie McGarry is moving on. Taking over in the role of what is now SVP/group management director, new business development will be 15-year DFCB vet Sue Redington. You can read the full memo from Draft Chicago president Michael Fassnacht, CCO Todd Tilford and Redington’s direct boss, group management director Mark Bellissimo to staff after the jump. As for McGarry, sources say that she is headed to O’Keefe Reinhard & Paul, which was launched in Chicago earlier this year by fellow Draftfcb alums Tom O’Keefe and Nick Paul as well as ex-Amazon exec Matt Reinhard.
