“As much as I have loved these roles for the past few decades, it is time to do something different and to challenge myself again. I have a lot of ideas and a few interesting options, but for now, I’ll take some time off and then plot a course for the future.
“There have been many people that have influenced and guided my BBDO career since 1994. Clemenger. My sincere thanks to all of you (and others) who kept challenging me with new roles, supported me unconditionally, and always valued me and my contribution.
“There are so many talented people that I have worked with over the past 29 years at BBDO. All of them have positively influenced me and my career, and I hope, I have in some way returned the favour.
“Being grateful is the definition of happiness, and I am eternally grateful for the last 29 years.
“Thank you BBDO.”
