We Hear: Momentum Parts Ways with ECD? (Updated: Yes)

Word on the street from multiple sources is that Josh Tavlin, who has spent just over a year as SVP/ECD at Momentum’s NY headquarters, is no longer with the agency. Tavlin, who also serves as an adjunct professor at Pratt, dubbed his alleged ex-employer one of “planet earth’s most eclectic experiential agencies.” Anyhow, you might remember Tavlin as a former SVP/group creative director at Ogilvy, where he spent nearly two decades but departed said agency along with fellow creatives Chris Mitton and Bruce Henderson at the beginning of last year. When reached for comment, we were transferred to Tavlin’s assistant at Momentum though direct contact was futile. We’ll keep you posted on the goings on once we get the official word, but we’re hearing that Tavlin was let go by Momentum yesterday.

Update: Momentum confirms that it has parted ways with Tavlin, and while not getting into specifics, the agency says, “We truly wish Josh the best in his next chapter.”
