(June 1, 2001) -- Robert Allen, president and COO of True North Communications' Modem Media unit, is taking a leave of absence for what the company called "an undisclosed period of time." Allen, who has been with the company for 12 years, will continue to serve on the its board. Earlier this year, Modem brought in a new CEO, Marc Particelli, to bolster the Norwalk, Conn.-based i-shop's executive team. -- Catharine P. Taylor
