Independent agency Atomic 212° has issued a statement on the resignation of its CEO Jason Dooris.
The statement issued by the agency said: “After leading more than eight years of continuous growth as the group CEO and founder of Atomic 212°, the business announced today that Jason Dooris is set to leave the agency he founded with childhood friend, James Dixon.
“Dooris plans to realise a life family goal in undertaking studies in political science and terrorism at Oxford University, and also to spend time with his young family.
Jason was severely injured in the Sari Club in Kuta Beach when the terrorist bomb exploded in October 2002, killing 202 people. His best friend Michael Standring died in the firestorm that followed the massive explosion.”
Dixon, co-founder and chief digital officer at Atomic 212°, said: “It’s wonderful to see Jason pursue something that’s so uniquely important to him and his family. Given his personal experiences, I have always admired his balanced and understanding view of the world.”
Barry O’Brien, chairman and chief commercial officer at Atomic 212°, said: “I wish Jason all the best in his future endeavours.”
Commenting on his departure, Dooris said: “The past eight years of Atomic has been the highlight of my career, and thanks to a solid foundation, the company is very well-positioned for continued growth, expansion and success.
“I will really miss the team but also really look forward to learning more about a subject that is very important to me.”
