Martin Agency Creative Chief Joe Alexander Says He Left To Avoid Investigation; Reasons For Swift Departure Still Unclear


By Tammie Smith, Richmond Times-Dispatch

The Martin Agency’s former creative director Joe Alexander said he resigned late last week to avoid an investigation.

“The Martin Agency is my family. Rather than a drawn-out, hurtful investigation, resigning was the proper thing to do to protect my family and all the people I’ve worked so closely together with in my 26 wonderful years,” Alexander wrote in an email Wednesday.

“I will always love that place and people who make it so special. Please respect my privacy during this very, very sad time,” he said.

Alexander didn’t provide details of the investigation.
