Blue 449 head of investment Daniel Cutrone leaves to join startup Avenue C

Publicis owned Blue 449 has announced that its head of investment, Daniel Cutrone, will be leaving the agency next month to join new media and technology agency Avenue C as a partner.

Cutrone joined Blue 449 two years ago.

Cutrone: “An extremely difficult decision to leave”

John Preston, CEO of Blue 449, said in a press release: “We are obviously sad to see Daniel leave. However, leaving to start his own venture is exciting for him, and having done it myself I completely understand his motivations and we wish him all the best in his next chapter.

“Daniel has helped build a very capable team with a great reputation in market. This makes the recruitment of Daniel’s replacement all the easier. We are actively recruiting for the next Head of Investment and they will have the perfect platform to once again take the Blue 449 trading offering to the next level for our clients and our team,” he added.

Cutrone said: “It was an extremely difficult decision to leave such a great place as Blue 449. John has built an incredible business and I wish the agency team and clients the very best moving forward. I am excited to join Avenue C as a partner and explore the next chapter of my career.”

Cutrone will be joining his brother at Avenue C.

Mumbrella revealed the launch of Avenue C in October last year in a venture led by former IPG Mediabrands group operations business director Hugo Cutrone and Ansible Australia’s former client advisory and partnerships lead William Chapman.
