Ending a stint of 23 years, Mohan Nambiar has resigned as CEO of MEC. This is a second senior exit for a GroupM agency after the formation of the umbrella brand in the Middle East ad North Africa region. Mr Nambiar was with the media agency since its inception in 1993. A year ago, Mindshare CEO, Samir Ayoub had quit the agency after a 17-year stint.
In a press statement, WPP said, “It’s with great sadness that we confirm that Mohan Nambiar, MEC and WPP veteran for 23 years, has decided to leave the company. We’re so proud of everything Mohan has helped us to accomplish. He’s enjoyed a long and incredibly successful tenure that saw us expand our offices across MENA and maintain our position as one of the top media agencies in the region.”
A successor for the role is not named yet. The WPP statement also said, “We’ll be appointing a successor soon, and will make that announcement in due course. Mohan’s passion for MEC and his energy for the company has truly built a thriving culture, and his commitment to his people and ensuring that they grow and flourish has been a fundamental part of his leadership here at MEC and will be sorely missed. We wish him and his family all the very best for the future.”
