In trying to organize the Flashmob for Marty Wenzell (see below), I tried to get in touch with Joe Palladino, who also was an account executive in the early days of Chiat/Day New York.
Sadly, I have found out that Joe died on Dec. 29th while visiting friends in New York. He had heart trouble and it is also thought that he had caught the flu. He was 64.
So on Thursday afternoon, lift a glass for Joe.
