13048: Admen At Work.

AgencySpy posted the Blind Item that follows:

Being an executive at a global digital agency is a demanding job that requires a lot of travel…and one such top marketer chooses to manage his work/life balance by spending time in the company of his favorite young female employees. Seems that every time this thought leader and newsletter writer has a business trip coming up, he asks his assistant to arrange for one of the agency’s early-20s lady staffers to accompany him to whatever hotel his expense account can afford. We hear that this executive doesn’t just like his female companions young—he also believes that variety is the spice of life, and he tries to take a different lucky lady on each trip. It’s OK, though, guys…as far as we can tell, he’s not married!

Can’t believe Kat Gordon didn’t complain that only 3 percent of the White women in advertising agencies are mistresses—or Cindy Gallop isn’t leveraging the story to hype her Make Love Not Porn production. It’s nice to see digital agencies challenging traditional advertising agencies—and PR firms—for leadership in the area of blatantly inappropriate behavior. And if the mystery man is indeed financing his escapades via an expense account, the bad boy behavior is likely illegal too.
