Jim Marcus Out at DDB

We’ve received word from those in the know that Jim Marcus, who last served as “SVP/director of communication “innovation” at the Chicago branch of the Omnicom-owned agency, has been axed. Marcus, who also moonlighted as a “high-powered sex toy” professor and a member of one of my fave industrial bands back in the day, led creative–mostly on the digital front–for clients such as McDonald’s.

To address another issue regarding DDB, we’ve been told by sources familiar with the matter that Die Warzau alum Marcus was one of a handful of Chicago office layoffs. While tipsters allege that there were more than 30 cuts, we hear otherwise, with sources saying it did affect five staffers.
