Valerie Heine is Taking a Break from Dentsu

We’ve received confirmation that Valerie Heine, Dentsu’s EVP/group account director on Toyota, is parting ways with the agency…for the time being. Heine is gearing up for a fall return to the agency, but for the summer, she is taking a sabbatical for personal reasons. A search is currently underway for her seemingly temporary replacement. Heine has served as EVP/GAD for four years at Dentsu, where she’s been a part of the senior executive team and is basically running the Toyota corporate account.

The exec has some history with the Japanese automaker, having spent nine years as VP, director for Lexus while at Saatchi & Saatchi’s Team One unit.  The 30-year ad vet has also logged in time at BBDO and Arnold Worldwide.
