Starcom trading head to leave agency
Starcom Australia's national trading head Andrew Taylor will leave the business after just over two years. The agency did not offer a reason for Taylor's departure in a brief statement. Starcom says Publicis Media’s group investment practice, Publicis Media Exchange (PMX), will work with Starcom’s investment function while the agency looks at how it wants to run its investment arm in the future. “PMX has been established as a practice within the Publicis Media group to deliver quality assured client outcomes and will collaborate with Starcom while we look at a restructure and decide on our future needs,” Starcom Australia CEO Toby Barbour says. “We would like to thank Andrew for his time with Starcom and wish him all the best for the future as he seeks new opportunities.”
