BOSTON: Julie Hall, GM of Weber Shandwick’s office in Boston, has left the agency after less than five months.
An agency spokesperson confirmed this week that Hall has exited the firm, but did not offer a reason for her departure. Hall’s duties overseeing the Boston office will be assumed by Joy Farber Kolo, president of Weber Shandwick East.
Hall stopped working at the Interpublic Group firm in January, according to her LinkedIn account. She declined to comment.
Hall started at Weber last September, reporting to Kolo. Micho Spring, chair of Weber’s global corporate practice and Weber Shandwick New England, said at the time that most of the Boston office’s 120 employees would report to Hall.
Luca Penati, president of Weber Shandwick West, said this month that he is planning to leave the agency on March 15. Last November, Ian Cohen, global executive producer and president of content creation and innovation, took a newly created position at PayPal as senior director and head of global content innovation and creation.
Weber reported mid-single-digit growth on an organic and as-reported basis for all of 2018 and "strong" double-digit growth, also on both an organic and as-reported basis, in Q4, agency CEO Andy Polansky said this month.
