Wieden & Kennedy London has been hit by another senior departure

with the news that the acting creative director, Tony Barry, is leaving

the agency without a job to go to.



Barry, who left the agency on Wednesday, was the only remaining member

of the original W&K London team, having joined the agency when it

launched in April 1998.



He was previously a copywriter at M&C Saatchi and joined W&K to work

alongside its joint creative directors, Nick Gill and Susan Hoffman.



During his two and a half year tenure, Barry has witnessed a rapid

turnover of staff in the creative department.



Gill joined Bartle Bogle Hegarty after seven months. Hoffman returned to

the US nine months later.



’I have been in the job for two and a half years, which is two years and

three months longer than most people,’ Barry said. ’I’ve given it my

best shot and it just hasn’t worked out.’
