Adam & Eve DDB's final two founders are leaving the agency. Group CEO James Murphy and Group CSO David Golding will exit in May 2019, after a lengthy British notice period. This follows the departure of the other two founders, Jon Forsyth in 2017 and Ben Priest earlier this year, after the quartet reached the end of their earnout in December 2016. Like Forsyth before them, non-compete agreements will likely keep Murphy and Golding from jumping into a new advertising endeavor for several years.
The agency's current leadership team of Joint CEOs Tammy Einav and Mat Goff, Chief Strategy Officer Alex Hesz and Chief Creative Officer Rick Brim remain.
