Organic Hires CSO, Finds Replacement for McAllister in NY

Well, Organic’s answered our question from 10 days ago as the Omnicom agency has indeed found a replacement for Amy McAllister, who served as general manager of its New York office before splitting for JPMorgan Chase. Taking over for McAllister in NY is Audrey Melofchik, who’s been with Organic for nearly two years and most recently served as SVP/engagement management.

Along with Melofchik’s appointment, Organic has welcomed back Monik Sanghvi (pictured) to serve as its chief strategy officer. The Detroit-based exec originally worked at the agency over a decade ago as group director, strategic services before assuming senior-level positions at the likes of Digitas and Team Detroit. Staying in Detroit for a minute, Joe DiMeglio, who took over for James Heughens as SVP/general manager of Organic’s Motor City office nearly a year ago, has been promoted to chief client officer.

Heughens Heads to McCann

Well, this pretty much flew under the radar but James Heughens recently left Organic Detroit after five years to take on the post of global client service director at McCann’s Motor City branch. From what we we’ve been told, Heughens (pictured) is working on the Chevy account, which of course is now being split in Detroit between McCann and Goodby, Silverstein & Partners.

During his five years at Organic, Heughens moved up from executive director of project management to SVP/general manager of the Omnicom agency’s Detroit and Chicago offices. Prior to Organic, Heughens spent nearly a decade at Sapient. His replacement at Organic, meanwhile, is seven-year vet Joe DiMeglio.

While we’re on the Organic tip, sources familiar with the matter tell us that the agency’s San Francisco office cut four non-billable staffers last Friday. So, there’s that.

Update: The McCann camp clarifies that Heughens is serving as global client service director of production operations for Commonwealth, which is the joint venture between Goodby and McCann that is focused on Chevy. So…pretty much what we said already.
