'Nice Agency' Henderson Bas Still Not Nice
Poor Henderson Bas can't catch a break. First Henderson Bas President Dawna Henderson was miffed that employees didn't properly clean their spaces during the agency's monthly Round Up and wrote a scathing email leaked to Adrants early this year. Second, upon trying to make a joke out of the event, Henderson altered the agency site to read "Please Come Back Later. We're Busy Cleaning" with a t-shirt offer and a red "As Seen on Adrants" logo but she also, alledgedly, fired the employee who leaked the email. Third, one of the agencies managers chastised underlings for not properly cleaning up after assembling some office furniture.
Now, we are told employees just can't stand the agency's "niceness" and are jumping ship. The tipster tells us, "First it was Michael Gramlow, Executive Creative Director, who left henderson bas for Dentsu. Then Colin Craig and Shane Fleming, Associate Creative Directors, bid farewell in November. Last week it was the turn of superstar Executive Creative Director Luli Radfahrer to leave the company. The well-known brazilian creative was the Agency big bet [joined agency in October]. It seems that the Nice Agency isn't able to keep its creative direction. Now there are no CDs, no ACDs, no ECDs. Just Art Directors, probably sending resumes like crazy."
So much for happy holidays at Henderson Bas.
