Saatchi & Saatchi North American Chairman-CEO Jennifer Laing and Saatchi & Saatchi Vice Chairman Tony Dalton are leaving the agency, citing personal reasons. Taking over their duties will be an eight-person management team--Julie Bauer, Keith Brunnell, Mike Burns, Tom Lom, Tim Love, Marie McNeely, Mike Popernik and Tod Seisser. Ms. Laing and Mr. Dalton, a longtime couple, will both return to the U.K. The move comes after Publicis, Paris, completes its acquisition of Saatchi & Saatchi.
