Andy Semons Out at G2

From what we’ve been told by sources familiar with the matter, Andy Semons was Wendy Lurrie‘s last major hire at G2. After being brought onboard to serve as executive director, strategic planning at the agency to focus on the agency’s healthcare and financial units, we’ve received word the Semons was let go by G2 earlier this morning after spending just eight months at the agency. Prior to G2, Semons spent time leading strategic planning at Wunderman NY and Y&R Brands in San Francisco. And yes, U.S. director of strategy/planning Eric Pakurar, who joined last fall, is still working at G2.

We Hear: Mike Dennelly Back at G2?

It appears that Mike Dennelly‘s on-again, off-again relationship with G2 is back on again as sources tell us that Dennelly has rejoined the agency and starts today. Dennelly left G2 (again) last September for McGarryBowen and a gig at said agency’s Digital Lab.

With Wendy Lurrie now out at G2, spies say Dennelly felt more “comfortable” in returning to the fold (or maybe it was just that MB wasn’t the right fit) and in doing so, will once again report to Eric Pakurar, who joined as head of U.S. head of strategy/planning. We’re double checking with G2 to find out what Dennelly’s exact title is.

Update: Dennelly has joined G2 as executive director, digital strategy.
