R/GA’s regional VP ECD Bob Mackintosh is taking a break from the industry to spend time with his family.
After two years with the company, based in Sydney, he’ll be leaving in late January and traveling around the globe with his family for the rest of the year.
Mackintosh joined R/GA from Host Sydney, now Host/Havas, where he worked for five years.
"We’re sad to see Bob go and more than a little bit envious of his plans, but he’s leaving the creative teams and work in very capable hands,” R/GA global CEO Sean Lyons said.
“Bob has built and led our creative leadership in the region and done so with wit and grace,” R/GA founder Bob Greenberg said.
“Fearlessness and curiosity are two of the qualities that we most cherish in our people, and stepping away from a job you love into the great unknown takes both.
It’s a rare opportunity that Bob has seized, and he leaves with everyone’s best wishes and an inkling that, as is often the case at R/GA, our paths may converge again in the future.”
R/GA will announce his replacement shortly.
