Publicis Media ANZ chief operating officer Chris Nolan will leave the agency group at the end of May.

The role will not be replaced.

Nolan is looking to new career opportunities and will be working with Publicis Media ANZ CEO, Matt James, to transition his responsibilities in the coming month.

“I would like to thank Chris for his commitment and leadership contribution to Publicis Media in Australia over the last two years," Publicis Media APAC CEO Gerry Boyle says.

He has helped drive Publicis Media into a position of strength and we will continue to build on this proposition and capability for the future. We wish him well in his future endeavours."

Nolan has been with the agency since 2005, joining Starcom Mediavest Group (SMG) as MD of the Melbourne office before being promoted to CEO of SMG group and then becoming COO of Publicis Media ANZ in 2016.

“I would like to thank my Publicis Media colleagues, both locally and across the globe, for their continued support over the last 13 years and I wish them all the best for the future. I would also like to thank the clients that I have worked with," Nolan says.

"Through helping to grow your businesses, I have remained inspired in all that you have achieved and I hope you continue to prosper. And to the publishers I have worked with, thank you for your partnership, support and encouragement.”
