After 18 years at Chicago-based Euro RSCG Tatham, CEO Mary Baglivo, 41, will leave the agency in June. She cited personal reasons for her departure. Tatham President Gary Epstein will assume Ms. Baglivo's responsibilities but will not add her CEO title. The CEO post will not be filled. Mr. Epstein will continue to work closely with Tatham Chairman Bob Welke. The three senior executives have spent the past several weeks informing clients of Ms. Baglivo's decision. Ms. Baglivo said she is leaving the agency to return to her native New Jersey. She will take the summer off to spend time with her two children, but plans to rejoin the marketing work force in the fall. "I love the advertising and the agency business. I'm looking forward to getting back into that," Ms. Baglivo said.
