Details are vague and no timetable has been set, but sources in the know confirm that Huge founding partner Gene Liebel, who’s been with the Brooklyn-based, IPG-owned digital agency for well over a dozen years, is moving on. From what we’ve been told by sources, Huge, which would not comment on the matter, is currently in a “transition phase” with Liebel, who moved up to chief strategy officer at the agency in fall 2010 (at the same time that fellow founding partner Aaron Shapiro was promoted to CEO).
We’ve been told that Liebel’s impending departure, which will just leave Shapiro as the last remaining Huge founding partner, is an amicable one. We’re hoping to fill in the blanks on his next move within the next couple of weeks. We’ll keep you posted.
