The article reports that Y&R Advertising chief executive officer Chris Jaques has deflected speculation concerning Wunderman Co. regional president Mike Langton's departure from the network, preferring to focus on the improvements to the agency's structure. 'We have been looking at ways of making Wunderman leaner and meaner throughout the region, looking to focus all our resources to deliver direct value to clients in-market,' explained Jaques. Sources had previously intimated that Langton's exit from the network may have been spurred by dissatisfaction among Wunderman management. However, both Jaques and Langton pointed to a recent 'medical review' as a catalyst for Langton's departure, which came 15 months after he joined the network.
