Allen Wallach and Andrew Yanez, founding partners of Fort Worth-based advertising agency Concussion LLP, have ended their 12-year partnership and will operate separate firms.
Effective immediately, Wallach will continue to manage Concussion’s business and Yanez will launch his new firm, PYTCHBLACK. The terms of their agreement remain confidential, and both said it is an amicable and mutually beneficial arrangement.
