According to Adweek, Christou was terminated after more than seven years at the agency, though, according to Publicis, in a statement, the move “was prompted by business evolution and not related to any prior personnel issue.”

Approximately three years ago, it was also reported that a claim against Christou was settled in mediation without going to court.

The spokesperson further told Adweek that: “In 2015, we handled a personnel dispute quickly and effectively. Publicis takes all personnel disputes seriously, and we have strong policies and procedures in place to protect all our people.”

Christou is credited for helming breakthrough work for T-Mobile that placed a premium on celebrities and athletes and leveraged the personality of the brand’s CEO, John Legere telling Fast Company in 2015 that, “John is not the king in the back, standing behind his soldiers. He’s the first one running with a sword into battle.”

Christou also led creative for American Girl, Eddie Bauer and more.

Aside from T-Mobile, Publicis Seattle counts Aflac, radio station KEXP and the Special Olympics as clients.
