WE’s EMEA general manager, Chris Talago, has announced that he will leave the agency on May 1.
Talago joined WE, known as Waggener Edstrom until a rebrand last September, in 2008 to head up its offerings across multiple sectors in Europe including public affairs, consumer, technology, corporate and healthcare.
Before WE, he was head of EMEA comms at semi-conductor manufacturer AMD, following eight years in senior agency positions at Hill+Knowlton and Text 100.
On his departure, a WE spokesperson said: “Chris Talago will be leaving the agency on 1 May. We wish him well in his future endeavours and look forward to sharing with you what’s next for WE in the next couple of weeks.”
Talago said on Twitter yesterday:
I'm leaving WE in May after eight years. Looking forward to time as a touchline dad and seeing what comes next. https://t.co/myjwgwdpk4
