Jason Peterson, chief creative officer for Havas North America, is leaving the company "on mutual agreement," the company confirmed Thursday.
The change comes the day after Ad Age published a story on a polarizing internal culture at Havas Chicago. Peterson did not speak to Ad Age for the story.
In an internal email and a statement obtained by Ad Age from Havas Group the company thanks Peterson "for his contributions to our organization in North America and [wishes] him all the very best in the future." The internal email was signed by Yannick Bollore, CEO of Havas.
