We Hear: Duffey Already Out at Saatchi Wellness?

Wow, it apparently didn’t take long at all for someone to break Mark Moll‘s record of arguably the shortest agency stint in recent memory as sources familiar with the matter tell us that Augusta Duffey has “resigned” from her GCD gig at Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness after just three-plus months. Duffey officially joined Wellness in mid-July with the goal being to focus on digital across all agency accounts including Plavix, Allegra and NuvaRing. We’re awaiting some sort of official confirm, but calls to Duffey went unanswered. Is an automated voice message a bad sign?

Update: Duffey has reached out and told us that she indeed left Wellness to take “a great position running the creative on the digital side of a large media company.” She won’t specify which one as of yet, but adds that it was “too good of an opportunity to pass up.”
