After spending the last year-plus as part of the leadership team at Union, the agency that emerged following the shuttering of CP+B’s Toronto office, Dave Carey is no longer with the MDC Partners-backed operation. Carey, who held the title of partner/client service at Union, led the agency alongside former Taxi 2 ECD Lance Martin, and former CP+B Toronto president, Subtej Nijjar. Below is a statement from Union about Carey’s departure:
“We can confirm that Dave Carey has left Union to pursue outside interests. The agency has had a tremendous first year, doubling in size while proudly delivering results for clients including Mondelez, Kraft and and Colgate, and we greatly appreciate Dave’s contributions to the launch of our new breed of agency. Together, we established a course for many years of continued success, and he remains a friend of the agency and of ours personally. We wish him all the best in his next adventure.”
Prior to his time at Union, Carey spent a year as SVP/client services at fellow Canadian agency, Lowe Roche, and has also worked as senior-level account at Innocean’s Toronto branch on Kia among other accounts. From what we’ve been told, there are currently no plans to replace his role at Union.
