McGraw Has Indeed Left Big Fuel

Well, it looks like Mike McGraw beat us to the punch by a few hours as he’s updated his LinkedIn to reflect what we’ve been hearing since last night, that the aforementioned COO/managing partner of Big Fuel has indeed left the Publicis Groupe-owned agency. McGraw’s departure comes barely three months after CEO Jon Bond split from the social media-focused Big Fuel, which we believe currently works with clients including T-Mobile, Starwood, Chase, Clorox, Budweiser and J&J.

McGraw, whose headshot still appears on Big Fuel’s leadership page, spent nearly six years at the agency but has now split to consult with and invest in new start ups in the social/digital space. Well, we’ll always have his brief cameo in Big Fuel’s self-promo from 2011 (below) as a “formerly disconnected” guy to remember him by.
