Stern Indeed Out at G2

After two weeks’ worth of murmurs, we’ve now received official confirmation that G2 has indeed parted ways with Scott Stern, who’s spent nearly the last three years at the agency serving as executive director, integrated solution and business development. No word yet on whether G2–which as you may know has recently joined forces with OgilvyAction–is planning to immediately replace the exec, but an agency spokesperson tells us, “Scott Stern is no longer with G2, as of March 21, 2013. We thank him for his contributions over the years and wish him the best of success in his future endeavors.”

Stern originally worked with Grey back in the mid-late ’90s and subsequently served as and an SVP at OgilvyAction/Bates 141 as well as a consultant for the likes of Coca-Cola and Nestea.

Bob Traino Out at G2

We’ve received confirmation that G2 has parted ways with longtime staffer Bob Traino, who was most recently group director in the business development team. From what we’ve been told, Traino had been part of the old Direct & Digital guard under Wendy Lurrie, who of course saw her time end at G2 at the beginning of this year.

As for Traino, the veteran G2 exec originally joined what was then Grey Direct in 1995 and spent 11 years as SVP, business management supervisor before transitioning to G2 Direct & Digital in ’06. Sources familiar with the matter are saying that Traino’s departure is part of some “house cleaning” that’s being done by Scott Stern, G2′s new head of biz dev whose formal title is executive director, business development and integrated solutions.
