// Harvey Nichols’ group marketing and creative director Deborah Bee set to exit
// The department stores creative agency is also set to depart
Harvey Nichols’ group marketing and creative director Deborah Bee is set to exit from the department store according to a report.
The creative agency TBWA\London she appointed two years ago when she joined will also be cutting ties with the retailer.
According to Campaign Live Bee is leaving in July “to pursue new career opportunities and her writing projects” and TBWA\London has resigned the account.
Bee’s departure follows the joint COO’s Daniela Rinaldi exit who left two months ago after 35 years at the firm.
The agency took over from Adam & Eve/DDB, which is owned by the same parent company as TBWA and worked with the retailer for over 17 years.
The agency’s original remit had been to create an “alternative to brand campaigns” but a spokesperson told to Campaign that the retailer hadn’t used the agency for campaigns in months.
