Howell, Arnold Parting Ways

Matt-HowellWe’ve been told by those in the know that this is “completely unrelated” to Monday’s cuts, but Arnold chief digital officer Matt Howell and Arnold are, as mentioned, parting ways. Here’s a quick statement from the agency:

“Matt Howell will be leaving his post as Chief Digital Officer at Arnold. He has been an important contributor to the agency and we thank him for his work and leadership. Over the last year, we re-engineered the agency’s operating model to move from digital as a department to digital embedded throughout the company. That vision has streamlined our structure to include four ‘super groups’ – marketing, strategy, creative and production, with digital leadership and specialists in each.”

To refresh memory if need be, Howell joined Arnold three years ago as managing partner/global CDO after serving as president of the now-defunct, Boston-based agency, Modernista! No word yet on Howell’s next stop but we’ll keep you posted when we find out.
