Fred Levron, FCB’s worldwide creative partner, is leaving the Interpublic shop and is expected to land a job at Dentsu working under global CEO Wendy Clark.
FCB confirmed Levron’s departure is effective at the end of this week.
“Fred has been an incredible partner to so many of us at FCB,” Susan Credle, FCB’s global chief creative officer, said in a statement. “On behalf of FCB and especially the Global Creative Council, we are truly thankful for all that he has contributed to our success.”
People familiar with the matter said he was destined for Dentsu. Multiple executives at Dentsu either declined comment or did not respond to requests for comment. Gordon Bowen, founder of dentsumcgarrybowen, currently holds the title of chief creative officer for Dentsu International. Bowen also did not return a request for comment.
