Sources in the know have confirmed that Mark Himmselbach and Teddy Lynn will be leaving BBDO. The agency has declined to comment on the matter, but despite what tipsters are saying, our sources tell us that the pair is NOT starting their own independent agency venture though they will be working together in some capacity. Both Himmelsbach and Lynn worked out of BBDO’s New York hub, with the former serving as EVP/director of digital strategy, North America for the last two years while the latter held the title of EVP/director of content.

From what we’ve been told, this will be their last week at BBDO. Prior to their most recent gigs, Himmelsbach worked at fellow Omnicom agency PHD while Lynn held content roles at the likes of UM and Arnold.
