JWT Parts Ways with a Couple of ECDs

Nearly 18 months after joining up with JWT New York to work on the agency’s then-existing Microsoft commercial business, sources familiar with the matter confirm that executive creative director Bill Oberlander is no longer with the agency. Oberlander (pictured), a former Cossette CCO/EVP and McCann alum is not the only senior-level creative to be shown the door, though, as we’ve been told by sources that Jeremy Postaer is also out. From what we hear, the cuts were a result of “restructuring at the ECD level.” As you all know, JWT NY also recently parted ways with CCO Peter Nicholson following the hiring of Jeff Benjamin and Mike Geiger, so perhaps this latest “restructuring” is part of the mix.
