Bonner Out at Momentum

And so, it continues. We’ve received word that David Bonner, who joined IPG-owned Momentum Worldwide’s St. Louis office barely six months ago as SVP/executive creative director, is no longer with the agency. From what we’ve been told, Bonner’s departure is “related to a proactive restructure of” Momentum’s “Midwest creative resources” and that the agency does “wish him well on his next chapter.” Bonner joined Momentum and essentially replaced Jeff Stevens after spending time on the senior creative tier at the likes of JWT Chicago, BBDO Toronto, Doe Anderson and GJP. No word yet if there are plans to replace Bonner at Momentum St. Louis, but we’ll let you know when we do.
