We Hear: Charnock Out at R/GA?

charnockWell, after making a phone call to “the agency for the digital age,” we learned that William Charnock was not in the company directory, which perhaps tells us what tipsters have been saying since last night, that R/GA’s chief strategy officer has parted ways (or vice versa). Charnock was appointed as chief strategy officer nearly four years ago at R/GA, working out of the agency’s New York headquarters.

We’re double-checking with the agency’s PR folks, but prior to his time at R/GA, Charnock spent nearly eight years at JWT, last serving as director of strategic planning/co-head of strategic planning out of the agency’s Big Apple hub. During his career, the exec held various planning director roles at the likes of BBDO, what was FCB and Ogilvy London/New York.
