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.

Under their leadership, Concussion engaged high-profile, national brands such as Konami, Texas Motor Speedway, Dean Foods’ Borden Cremora Non-Dairy Creamer, Chesapeake Energy, Brinker International’s On The Border restaurants and Bell Helicopter.

Local charitable agencies and arts organizations the partners have worked with include Downtown Fort Worth Initiatives Inc., the Child Study Center, Gill Children’s Services, the MAIN ST.
