The magazine quotes a statement from the agency: “Julie Winksie is leaving Porter Novelli to explore other opportunities. We wish her well and will always be grateful for her contributions in helping to shape the firm’s foundation.”
There’s no statement on the firm’s website at this time and her bio is still available under the leadership tab as of the time this story was published.
She worked closely with clients including P&G and Hewlett-Packard. Ad Age says her duties will be assumed by other firm leaders.
