We’re getting word that the New York office of the agency formerly known as Euro RSCG has parted ways with two senior-level creatives, namely executive creative director Rahul Sabnis and CD George Simpson. When inquiring about both parties, we were told their name is no longer in the computer at Havas Worldwide. From what we’re hearing, longtime Euro–sorry, Havas–client Reckitt Benckiser, which appointed said agency as its global AOR over six years ago, is looking to “shake things up,” hence the release of Sabnis and Simpson.
Sabnis has spent the last five years at Havas, joining initially as creative director before eventually assuming the title of integrated ECD. Prior to Havas, Sabnis worked as an ACD at Digitas. Simpson, meanwhile, spent six-and-a-half years at Havas, working as ACD/copywriter before moving up to his most recent position. During his career, Simpson worked at the likes of Digitas and KBSP division, dotglu.
