Basically two years to the day that he joined Arnold’s Boston office in a new position called chief commercial officer, Dave Dugan has left the agency according to those in the know. Here’s a quick statement from an agency spokesperson: “”We wish Dave great success and look forward to working with him on innovative marketing platforms for our clients. We are using this opportunity to clarify our management structure and responsibilities, and will communicate the plan shortly.”
Dugan joined Arnold after spending time at the likes of Digitas and BzzAgent, and was tasked at his most recent gig with building “out current capabilities and identify opportunities to build new lines of business.” In addition Dugan worked on Arnold services including CRM, social, mobile and new biz efforts.
From what we’re hearing on the Spy line, Dugan is taking a position at the almighty social network that is Facebook. No confirmation yet, but we’re checking in and will keep you posted. From what the Arnold camp tells us, meanwhile, his position will not be replaced.
