Chris Parry, the new group chief executive of Triangle, has walked
out of the agency after just three months due to a difference of opinion
with its founder and chairman, Kevin Twittey.
His departure draws to a close his third job in less than a year. Last
July he was moved from his position as chairman of FCA! to become the
chief executive of sister agency Publicis Dialog. He quit that job after
seven months and took the Triangle role one month later.
Parry would not be drawn on the nature of the difference of opinion,
though a personality clash with Twittey is thought to be a key
Parry said: ’This is actually a very positive thing for me. It has
helped me concentrate my mind on what I want to do in the future. One
thing is clear: I want to work with somebody, rather than for somebody.
I have had a number of conversations with potential backers and I’m
certainly not looking to just take a job as chairman of a blah agency.’
