Wunderman MD Jo Lloyd is leaving the agency after eight years, with a search for a new Australian and New Zealand leader underway.
Effective immediately, Wunderman offices in Sydney, Melbourne, and Auckland as well as its newly acquired Bienalto operation now report to the agency’s Asia-Pacific headquarters in Singapore, and to Wunderman’s regional president Stephane Faggianelli.
Lloyd's resignation follows the transfer of national ECD Matt Batten to the UK in December to take a chief creative officer role within the Y&R family.
A blunt press release from Y&R today said: “With solid management teams across all offices no immediate replacement will be announced.
“A search for an ANZ leader is under way with the aim to further expand the network through continued acquisitions in the fast developing sectors of data, social and technology.”
