We heard nothing more on the subject until today, when we received a tip claiming that the agency had hired a new CEO: Hugh Boyle, global chief digital officer at Geometry Global Chicago.
Mr. Boyle is a hard man to find: he recently deleted his Twitter account, and all calls to his Chicago office went straight to voicemail. Neither TracyLocke in Dallas nor Omnicom’s corporate office in New York offered any assistance on the topic.
Some backstory: Mr. Boyle hails from the United Kingdom, and he spent more than eight years at Ogilvy Action in London after the agency acquired his former employer, Tarantula. In 2011 he was promoted to global head of digital at the Ogilvy shop, and just over a year ago he moved to the U.S. to accept the CDO position at Geometry.
Updates when we get them.
