We Hear: Walt Connelly Already Out at Ogilvy?

We’ve received a couple of tips in the last hour regarding the status of Walt Connelly, who joined Ogilvy & Mather New York just five months ago as executive creative director on the IBM account. Spies are now telling us that he’s already out at the agency. When we called Ogilvy’s New York HQ and asked for the ECD, we were told the name “Walt Connelly” wasn’t showing up in the computer. Hmm. Well, we’re checking with the proper folks for clarification on this matter and will update once we have a yea or nay.

Connelly joined Ogilvy from JWT, where he spent six years as ECD on Microsoft, Kimberly-Clark, HSBC, Ford and Bloomberg.
