Chief media officer James Greet has resigned from Cummins&Partners after less than 18 months at the agency.

Greet was a high-profile hire for Cummins&Partners back in 2015, with him previously holding the CEO position of media agency Ikon.

Greet has been on gardening leave since he resigned three months ago. It's not yet known where he will be going, but AdNews understands he is likely to resurface in the industry.

His departure follows a string of losses for Cummins&Partners, including chief financial officer (CFO) Chris Atkin, who quietly departed the business six months ago, as well as the exit of Melbourne trio Adam Ferrier, Jim Ingram and Ben Couzens.

Greet's departure is likely to have impacted the decision for Sean Cummins to return to Australia, following his three-year stint in New York.

In an internal move, Cummins' Michelle Sheehan has taken on CFO Atkin's responsibilities.

Speaking to AdNews, founder of the agency Sean Cummins says it has “deep talent ranks” so all the major changes lately have given “great opportunities to the stars in our team”.
