Rob Moore exits MediaCom Melbourne

By Paige Murphy | 13 May 2019

MediaCom Melbourne general manager Rob Moore has exited the company in what is part of a wider restructure within the organisation.

Moore had been with the business for more than two years where he was managing partner until May last year when he was promoted.

MediaCom AUNZ CEO Willie Pang told AdNews that the departure was in line with operational changes happening within the company's Melbourne team.

"On behalf of everyone at MediaCom AUNZ, I would like to thank Rob whole-heartedly for his commitment, leadership and dedication to MediaCom," Pang says.

"I would also like to wish him the very best for the future. I have no doubt he will go on to do great things. We are very fortunate to have a strong leadership presence in Melbourne that is devoted to ensuring our people and clients receive the best possible support and results."

Prior to his time at MediaCom, Moore worked with Roadshow Films for more than six years and also held stints at Starcom, Universal McCann and Carat.

Last month, MediaCom group director of insights Lory Vecchio departed the business after 22 years. A spokesperson for MediaCom told AdNews his role would not be replaced at this stage.

The news of Moore's departure comes after the announcement that MediaCom would be launching its own global sports sponsorship and entertainment division, MediaCom Sport & Entertainment, led by MediaCom Sydney's managing director Ben McCallum.

Earlier in the year, MediaCom's holding group WPP AUNZ posted a statutory loss of $17.1 million for 2018 on top of impairments and has taken a hit to revenue from its Advertising, Media Investment Management segment.

WPP AUNZ's John "Steady" Steedman has since outlined plans for a turnaround and restructuring at the agency holding group.
