We Hear: Robert Thompson Out at Saatchi X

For those of you interesting in the shopper marketing sector, our last post of the day covers the apparent resignation of one Robert Thompson (PhD), who joined Publicis-owned Saatchi & Saatchi X last year as VP of research and technology. When we called the agency’s Arizona Arkansas office (gah, thanks Mr. Parker), we were told there was nobody by that name at X’s U.S. HQ or in its New York and Chicago offices. Hmm. Anyhow, Thompson arrived at the agency from MillerCoors Brewing in Chicago.

One tipster tells us that Thompson “is the 8th senior executive in the past year to leave his post” including former CEO Andy Murray,” who was replaced by one-time P&G exec Dina Howell last October.
