We Hear: Bentley Out at AKQA?

Over the last few days, we’ve received several tips that AKQA New York and its general manager David Bentley have parted ways. As usual, we were met with the old “no comment” from the agency, but another source just chimed in that Bentley’s out, effective immediately. The exec has spent nearly a decade within the AKQA network, serving as development/client services director across the European officer before landing in New York in 2009 to replace Jason Whiting as MD. One tipster laments/boasts that Bentley has “¬†done a fantastic job over the last 3 years redesigning, rebuilding and growing [the New York] office.” We’ll keep you posted once we find out more.
