Update: a third source confirms the move.

Today we’re hearing that the agency is abuzz with the latest high-level departure, this time from the strategy side. Director of Digital Strategy Jeremiah Knight is apparently heading to Team One, though neither TBWA nor Team One were immediately available for comment.

Departures are becoming so common “its practically a punch line” says a person familiar with the matter. At a time when the agency is trying to show off its digital savvy, losing Knight is a big loss. He’s known around the shop as “the cleaner”, which means Team One is getting someone who can ease client woes.

It’s another big loss for TBWA. Knight began as an account supervisor, working his way up through direct and interactive marketing before the directorial strategy position. Other losses include interactive CD Jason Nichols, Al Kelly and Hashem Bajwa, among others.
