Kerrigan Leaving Gyro

Here’s a little across-the-pond news for the midday. Sources familiar with the matter confirm that Gyro London executive creative director Ian Kerrigan will be leaving the agency within the “next couple of months.” No word yet on where he’s headed to, but tipsters add that it’s “a pretty big job.” Kerrigan has been with Gyro’s London branch for over two-and-a-half years, leading creative for clients including L’Oreal, Virgin Atlantic, FedEx, T-Mobile and Fujitsu. Prior to Gyro, Kerrigan had stints as an ECD and digital creative director at the London offices of Critical Mass and Leo Burnett, respectively.

It’s been a busy week at Gyro London, which may be losing an ECD but has gained a new managing director in Nick Jefferson.
