Michaels, Walter Part Ways with DigitasLBi

suzannedigitas2And now, back to the grind. We’ve received confirmation that Suzanne Michaels, who’s spent the last four-and-a-half years at the Chicago branch of what is now DigitasLBi, is leaving the agency effective Jan. 6 During the last 18 months of her time at DigitasLBi, Michaels, who we’ve been told is joining up as executive creative director at Critical Mass, served as SVP/creative and led digital, mobile and social efforts for Team Sprint. From what we’ve been told, Lewis McVey, currently GCD, is stepping up as SVP, creative leader for Sprint, effectively immediately. As for Michaels, prior to her time at DigitasLBi, the creative exec worked at the likes of Tribal DDB and JWT.

Along with the departure of Michaels, DigitasLBi Chicago is also losing Rick Walter, technology manager, who’s leaving his post effective Jan. 3 and moving into a project management role at a small startup consulting group. From what we gather, both partings are amicable.
