After a decade at M&C Saatchi, David Whittle (pictured) has decided to leave the agency.
The managing director, who has spent the past two and a half years leading the day-to-day operations of the agency, leaves in search of "new adventures".
During his time at M&C Saatchi, Whittle has played a critical role in establishing the agency’s digital offering, setting-up the agency’s digital, direct and data agency Mark, as well as its digital production business MAKE.
Both Mark and MAKE quickly established themselves as fully autonomous businesses within the M&C Saatchi Group, each run by their own leadership teams.
M&C Saatchi CEO Jaimes Leggett said: “David has made a major contribution to this agency and we’ll miss him. We wish him all the best in his next endeavor.”
