NEW YORK: Nancy Rueth, head of Ogilvy's New York office, is leaving the firm at the end of the month.

A 22-year veteran of the agency world, Rueth's Ogilvy tenure lasted for more than seven years. 'I want to look for a new adventure,' she said, describing CEO Bob Seltzer's reaction to the news as 'surprised but supportive.' Her plans might include consulting or a corporate post.

The leadership void in the NY office will temporarily be filled by Ogilvy/DC prexy Marcia Silverman and global business heads Kym White, Mark Curran and Paul Hicks. The firm is looking at both internal and external candidates to replace Rueth.
