According to the agency, Turnbull is headed to another agency that’s unknown to the senior ranks at Proximity.

Timothy Welsh, senior vice-president of creative operations and new business at parent agency BBDO Toronto, confirmed to Marketing that Monday was Turnbull’s final day.

Welsh declined to comment on the agency’s plans for filling Turnbull’s role or whether there is currently an interim president of Proximity Canada.

Turnbull had been in the role for a little under a year, filling a vacancy created when Dave Lafond left to join Cossette as president of English operations.

Prior to that, Turnbull had been senior vice-president of strategy and insight at Proximity. He previously worked in planning at Publicis Modem in London, England.

In 2012, Turnbull was selected as one of Marketing‘s Top 30 Under 30. Messages to Turnbull were not returned at press time.
