We Hear: Graham Mills No Longer MD at Digitas Health?

As the media world continues buzzing about Digitas CEO Laura Lang‘s move to Time Inc. (which we’ve been told “took everyone by surprise” when it was announced on Oct. 27), we’ve also been hearing from multiple sources that there’s a little transition occurring in the Publicis/VivaKi agency’s Health unit. Word on the street is that after a year of taking on dual roles as ECD/managing director, Graham Mills is no longer serving as the latter and now, Rich Newman “takes on sole reins” as as the Philly-based agency’s MD. Mills, who’s been with Digitas for six years and has served as the Health unit’s ECD for over three, will maintain his aforementioned title while Newman continues on as SVP/managing director, which he assumed back in May of this year.

Update: From what we’ve been told, Mills is still the ECD at Digitas Health.
