C&IT reported Day's departure on Friday, and has since learnt that Murphy left the company in March, while Leo Minster – who was hired as a freelance creative from Mister – left prior to this.
Meanwhile, David Missen, also hired on a freelance basis from Mister, is to depart Albert imminently.
Albert chief executive John Saunders (pictured) said: "[Murphy, Minster and Missen] were taken on with the view of expanding an account which did not materialise. Albert has changed its focus and has become more social media focused. We have therefore restructured the team accordingly. In these challenging economic times for the marketing industry it's important that we remain focused on our core product whilst trying to remain as competitive and as profitable as possible."
Murphy joined Albert in June last year from Iris Worldwide, where he was account director. According to his Linkedin page, he worked on several global accounts including sporting goods, mobile handsets and FMCGs.
Minster has held creative roles at Iris, Inferno and Exposure while Missen's previous roles include senior 3D designer at Iris Worldwide.
