(July 16, 2001) -- Kirk Souder, a founder and creative partner at Ground Zero, Los Angeles, has left the agency.

Mr. Souder will be taking personal time with his family, said agency President Jim Smith.

Ground Zero was founded seven and a half years ago by Mr. Souder and his co-creative director, Court Crandall, along with Mr. Smith. The shop, with 75 employees and billings of $90 million, includes clients such as the California Department of Health (handling its anti-smoking initiative) as well as ESPN2, for which the shop has won several creative awards. -- Alice Z.
