GOOGLE ENDS PARTNERSHIP WITH ADBLOCK PLUS’ PARTNER FOR ‘ACCEPTABLE ADS’ MARKETPLACE
Only one day after AdBlock Plus launched an advertising marketplace claiming that Google would sell ads that would be served to people who have installed an ad blocker, Google’s ads boss told reporters that the company is terminating its relationship with ComboTag—the ad-tech company that AdBlock Plus’ parent company Eyeo GmbH is working with.
“We were just as surprised by the announcement as you were,” said Sridhar Ramaswamy, svp of ads and commerce, while talking to reporters before his keynote at Dmexco. “We certainly have no relationship with Eyeo when it comes to this effort.”
“So, we are moving to terminate our relationship with ComboTag, which is the intermediary that Eyeo is working with. In all of this, it reinforces our—and my—strong belief that the core issue is the need for an ads standard that the industry endorses.”

Back in March chief strategy officer Rebecca Stambanis and executive creative director Jorge Calleja joined TBWA\Media Arts Lab following the departures of Marc-Antoine Jarry and Eric Grunbaum the previous month.
Now, less than six months later, both Stambanis and Calleja are no longer with the agency.
Executive director of integration Kaitlyn Wilkins, who joined TBWA\Media Arts Lab in March after overseeing strategy and integration for all brand and product marketing campaigns at Burberry London, has also left the Apple shop. A spokesperson for TBWA\Media Arts Lab confirmed the departures, but declined to comment further.
The quick exits of Stambansis, Calleja and Wilkins mark the latest in a series of executive departures at Media Arts Lab. In addition to Jarry and Grunbaum leaving in February, worldwide managing director Dave Dreyer and executive creative director Steve Turner both left TBWA\Media Arts Lab in April. (AgencySpy)
