After speculation over the past few days, Albert director John Saunders confirmed that Ian Irving is no longer with the company.

"Ian Irving has recently left the business. We wish him all the best. Albert is now moving on and will soon announce some great new wins for 2011," said Saunders.

As previously reported, Altitude Inspires is no longer operating after its staff and clients were moved over to new agency, Albert.

Contrary to other reports, Albert Experience is not a new company, but the new name given to John Saunders’ previous company Altitude Creative Communications, which was trading as Altitude Inspires.

Albert recently appointed strategic director Ian Christie and Katie Kenny, who left her position as RPM head of corporate at the same time as Irving in July.

When Albert was founded, Altitude kept its existing clients, whilst Irving, and his former partner at RPM Katie Kenny, are understood to have brought new business to the company.

Update 15 December: Katie Kenny is staying with Albert Experience.
