Sources familiar with the matter confirm that after just over a year as SVP, director of creative operations at BBDO New York, Anne Saulnier is no longer at the agency. Saulnier joined BBDO from Publicis & Hal Riney, where she spent nearly 15 years in a similar role. Tipsters say she was let go, adding, “The creative department is completely surprised and can’t figure out why — they’re all saying, ‘But she was good.’”
During her career, Saulnier has worked on the account/management side at the likes of W+K, N.W. Ayer and DDB.
