David Adams will continue to partner with Mr. Farquhar as exec VP-creative director.
Peter Stringham, North American chairman-CEO for Y&R Advertising, says Ms. Joseph "has made a significant contribution to Y&R Canada,particularly in driving for a more integrated approach, which includes new media opportunities."
Ms. Joseph says the agency is announcing her leaving well in advance of her actually ending her stay at Y&R "so that continuity for clients and staff will not be an issue. It's rare that someone gets the opportunity to work with the succession, and we're going to make the most of it over the next quarter." As for her reasons to leave, she said "I've made a very personal decision to look at other opportunities."
