Will Travis Out at Dentsu

We’ve heard from sources that Dentsu America CEO Will Travis was let go by the agency this week. No specifics were given, but his departure comes just two weeks after creative director Paul Laffy left the agency. If you remember, Travis recently went on a 3,500-mile bike race through the Andes and documented his adventures for AgencySpy.

The now-former chief exec spent the last year-plus as CEO and nearly two-and-a-half years in total at Dentsu. Prior to that, he was at ATTIK for just about a decade. Well, I guess now we know why our proposed drinks meetup never came to fruition.

Paul Laffy Out at Dentsu

We’ve received confirmation that Paul Laffy is no longer with Dentsu America. Laffy had been a lead creative director at the agency for approximately four years. He arrived from Ogilvy (after being recruited by then-Dentsu America EVP/CCO Mike Wilson), where he was a senior art director. Prior to that, Laffy spent six years at Mullen as AD/senior AD.

Word from spies is that Laffy’s departure, which happened just recently, was due to his issues with working on the Toyota account. Just last month, Dentsu NY happened to launch a new corporate campaign for the automaker that featured its Sienna minivan.
