Sandy Kolkey Out at Draft

Six months later, it’s over as Sandy Kolkey left Draftfcb after taking over for Peter DeNunzio in March of this year. An agency spokesperson tells us:

“Sandy Kolkey and Draftfcb agreed to part company.  We thank him for his many contributions to our agency over the years and wish him continued success.  Our New York agency will continue to be led by Dana Maiman, who was named CEO in August.  In managing the office she will partner closely with Darren Moran, who recently joined Draftfcb New York as our chief creative officer.”

Sources familiar with the matter add that Maiman has tripled the size of Draftfcb Healthcare over the past five years, and despite the constant rumors over the years, Draftfcb New York and Draftfcb Healthcare will continue to run as separate operations.
