According to AdAge, Nick Brien will walk with a golden parachute of $4.2 million fucking dollars. This in addition to the $4 million or so he has made each year for the last three years he has spent fucking up McCann. He gets this dumpster load of money for, according to the proxy statement… Being given high marks by top brass for his efforts to "effect a transition" at McCann, with key accomplishments including: "significant progress in assessing top talent across the organization and resulting moves to upgrade capabilities and geographic leadership as appropriate" and the establishment of "a structure to bring a broad range of talent and resources to clients, including cross-functional, global teams, and tapped senior regional leadership to lead this effort." He was also commended for a "high degree of focus on quality of the agency's creative product" and "active involvement" in diversity and inclusion activities. Holy fucking shit… How on earth could anyone write that kind of crap with a straight face? Where do I apply for a job like that?
