Ikon Communications CEO James Greet has left the company after 18 months in the job, and Pat Crowley has been promoted to managing partner of its Sydney office.

STW announced Greet's departure today, with Greet's resignation triggering a restructure at the Australian operation -- with each office to be headed up by a managing partner.

Lesley Edwards now becomes the managing partner at Ikon's Brisbane office, Sharon Cookson in Melbourne, Crowley in Sydney and Emma Bolser in New Zealand. All now report to STW CEO Mike Connaghan.

Pat Crowley's promotion to managing partner at Ikon Sydney is sure to have some tongues wagging, given he only came back to the company in August last year after spending three months at Match Media.

He came back to the company to lead up Ikon's retention of the $60 million Commbank account, and had formerly been the managing director of the Sydney office, and acting CEO before Greet's appointment.

STW did not answer questions posed on Crowley's promotion, nor shed any light on why Greet elected to depart the company on the back of a strong finish to 2014.

After losing the likes of Vodafone, Coca-Cola, and Diageo in late 2013 to mid-2014, it finished the year by retaining Commbank and picking up Flight Centre, along with a host of smaller wins.
