We Hear: Tyler Murray Splits from Saatchi X? (Update: Yes)

Well, the tips have been coming in and calls/emails to both the party involved and agency PR folks have been left unanswered thus far. But since yesterday, we’ve been hearing that Tyler Murray, who’s spent the last three-plus years at the Arkansas headquarters of Saatchi & Saatchi X (aka Saatchi’s shopper marketing branch) and currently serves as VP of digital and media, has resigned from the agency. Spies are alleging that Murray is splitting for a gig at the Dallas hub of TracyLocke, which just happens to be quoted alongside the exec in a recent Adweek article. Don’t know if it’s something that makes you go hmm-worthy, but we’re continuing to check with everyone involved on this front.

Update: Well, we were two-for-two on this We Hear item, as Murray did indeed leave Saatchi and has joined TracyLocke in Dallas. The latter agency tells us, “Start date is Aug 13th and he is heading up digital/mobile strategy consistent with our mission of creating content that drives commerce.”
