High-Profile Exit From Martin Agency in Richmond Followed Sexual Harassment Allegation, States AdAge

by | Dec 6, 2017

The rapid departure of Martin Agency veteran Joe Alexander followed an internal investigation into an allegation of sexual harassment by the chief creative officer, according to people with knowledge of the matter, reports AdAge, adding that the people “spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive subject. They say they don’t know what the investigation found.

“Asked whether The Martin Agency had investigated alleged sexual harassment by Alexander, a spokesman responded only indirectly.

“”There are instances when we’re unable to provide details in deference to the request of individuals who have come forward to report actions of others that are inconsistent with our values and guidelines,” said Dean Jarrett, chief communications officer at The Martin Agency, declining to elaborate.

“”The Martin Agency is my family,” Alexander said by email. “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. I will always love that place and the people who make it so special. Please respect my privacy during this very, very sad time.””
