That’s the question we’ve asked to those in the know this morning, but have yet to hear back about. In the meantime, as spies have mentioned, Amy McAllister has left her post as SVP/general manager of Organic’s New York for a gig as executive director, digital marketing group at the former bailout beneficiary that is JP Morgan Chase. Anyhow, McAllister spent three years in all at Organic, succeeding Minna Rhee back in 2010 after spending two years at O&M and ten years before that at Digitas, where she last served as SVP/marketing.
As noted above, we put in inquiries about immediate plans to replace McAllister, who’s not the only senior-level exec to leave Organic as of late. Recently, Drew Meyers split from Organic’s SF office, where he served as client services/engagement management lead, to assume the role of president at gyro SF and lead the agency alongside ECD, Steffan Postaer. Of course, Meyers, who’s also served on the digital account and/or management side at MRM/McCann and Publicis West during his career, spent just 10 months at Organic. Anyhow, we’ll fill you in if and when replacements for both aforementioned execs are found.
