And now, let’s kill two birds and mention some goings-on at the Havas Worldwide camp on this snow-filled day. First, to address tips that we’ve received since the end of January, yes, Megan Lally is leaving the agency as of tomorrow to pursue other interests. From what we’re hearing, Lally, who’s spent the last three years at Havas WW, working out of the Chicago office as SVP/group account director on the Citibank biz, is heading into the film industry. Prior to Havas, Lally worked as a VP on the account side at Saatchi & Saatchi X.
Second, in unrelated staffing news, sources confirm that 15-year Havas WW vet Annette Stover is no longer with the agency. Stover spent the last four years during her time at Havas Worldwide serving as global chief of staff. From what we’re hearing, her departure may have something to do with changes being made by Andrew Benett, who took over for David Jones as Havas Worldwide CEO last month. Prior to her lengthy stint at Havas WW, Stover spent several years at JWT.
