NEW YORK: Brian Maloney, MD of Ogilvy Public Relations’ US consumer marketing practice, has left the agency.
Margie Fox, who also serves as an MD in the consumer marketing practice, confirmed Maloney’s departure on Wednesday.
Further information about his exit or who will replace him in the role was not disclosed. Maloney was not immediately available for comment.
Maloney and Fox, who previously founded and ran their own eponymous agency, joined Ogilvy in early 2013. The Maloney & Fox firm was folded into parent agency Waggener Edstrom following the co-CEOs’ leap to Ogilvy.
In addition to leading the New York consumer marketing practice, Maloney’s main responsibilities at Ogilvy included managing the New York consumer team and handling client services, financial issues, and employee management.
Fox was brought on last year to also serve as US creative director for the agency’s consumer marketing practice.
Before launching his firm with Fox in 1997, Maloney served as SVP and director of technology PR at CRT/Tanaka for about two years, according to his LinkedIn profile.
Prior to that, he spent nearly seven years at Ogilvy as an SVP. Fox also previously worked at Ogilvy.
