We Hear: What’s Going on at West Studios?

We first inquired about this two weeks ago when the tips came in and have yet to hear back, but there seem to have been some notable defections in recent times from West Studios. If the name doesn’t ring a bell, West is the San Francisco-based shop that was launched two years ago by former Apple global marketing communications head, Allison Johnson, and was initially co-funded by Twitter co-founder, Jack Dorsey (we’re being told that Dorsey has since distanced himself from the company). During its initial launch, West was headed up by Johnson, former Martin Agency GCD Keith Cartwright and Katalyst digital head, Sarah Ross.

Well, as tipsters have pointed out, the latter two are no longer at West and in fact Cartwright doesn’t even acknowledge his time at the operation on their LinkedIn profiles. Of course, these aren’t the only notable departures from the SF shop in recent months. Travis Britton, former Cutwater principal/ECD who joined West as chief experience officer last year, has parted ways as has COO, Amanda Kelso (former W+K ECD Todd Waterbury was also in the mix but is now of course serving in the same role at Target). And today, we’re hearing that a major client is on the outs with the shop. We’re putting in more inquiries to the rather secretive West Studios, and will try to clarify what the state of the union is as soon as we hear more.

And Finally, Your ADC Advertising/Integrated Juries

We promise to keep this short, but since you were all clamoring for it, we might as well give you the rundown of the Advertising and Integrated juries for the 91st Annual ADC Awards. You have already received notice that Natalie Lam and 72andSunny’s John Boiler were jury chairs for Interactive and Advertising, respectively, but after the jump, you can check out the full jury roster for the latter category as well as Integrated. We’re sure there are some names you might recognize (Ian & Scott–ok, we’ve now been told that the former of the dynamic duo is not able to participate, Faris, etc.)
