WPP-owned creative and digital agency whiteGREY has confirmed that Claudia McInerney has resigned from her role as managing director of its Melbourne office.
McInerney will be returning to Sydney for family reasons, and will finish with the agency at the end of the year.
She has been the MD of whiteGREY since May 2017. Prior to that, McInerney held a number of roles at Grey Group before its merger with The White Agency.
McInerney has also worked at McCann Erickson, J. Walter Thompson and Leo Burnett.
Lee Simpson, CEO of whiteGREY, said in a statement to B&T: “While we are genuinely sad to farewell Claudia, we understand her reasons and wish her all the very best for the future.
“Claudia has made an incredible contribution to the business, and I would like to thank her for her dedication and all that she has contributed to whiteGREY.
“Claudia will remain as managing director until the end of the year, and during this time, will be working with clients and the agency team to ensure a seamless transition period.”
The agency has already begun its search for McInerney’s replacement, with an announcement will be made in due course.
