We’ve received confirmation that Paul Laffy is no longer with Dentsu America. Laffy had been a lead creative director at the agency for approximately four years. He arrived from Ogilvy (after being recruited by then-Dentsu America EVP/CCO Mike Wilson), where he was a senior art director. Prior to that, Laffy spent six years at Mullen as AD/senior AD.
Word from spies is that Laffy’s departure, which happened just recently, was due to his issues with working on the Toyota account. Just last month, Dentsu NY happened to launch a new corporate campaign for the automaker that featured its Sienna minivan.
