Michael Buckley to depart Amnesia

Amnesia Razorfish chief executive Michael Buckley has resigned from the digital agency, with managing director Doug Chapman set to take over operations.

Buckley leaves the agency after seven years. He was formerly managing director and was promoted to the chief executive role early this year.

Managing director Doug Chapman will lead the agency with the chief executive role to disappear. Chapman joined the digital shop in 2010 as client services director.

Founder and chief creative officer Iain McDonald is also part of Amnesia Razorfish's senior leadership team.

Buckley said: “I have had a great seven years at Amnesia Razorfish, with brilliant staff and amazing clients to follow. It has been an honour to work with them all and I wish them the best.”

Razorfish regional chief executive Vincent Digonnet said: “Doug is an outstanding leader who has demonstrated strong operation management skills in the past two years, earning respect from both clients and staff. We are very proud to have him run our Australian agency and I know he will maintain the spirit and the culture Michael has nurtured and developed.”

Vivaki chair for Australia and New Zealand Kevin Molloy added: “Amnesia Razorfish is a first-class operation and compliments our media agencies Starcom and ZenithOptimedia in our Vivaki portfolio. We are sad to see Michael go – he has done a fantastic job for us in growing the business and we wish him the very best.”

Amnesia clients include Qantas, Australia Post, Lion, Aussie, Google and Microsoft.
