Saatchi & Saatchi sees more senior exits

Saatchi & Saatchi is seeing several senior level departures.

Lionel Goh, GM of Saatchi & Saatchi is set to leave the agency at the end of the month, after seven years with the agency.

Earlier this year the agency dissolved its Saatchi Lab unit and placed the team under Saatchi & Saatchi. Goh was previously leading the Saatchi Lab business as general manager. From earlier this year, he was reporting to Paul Roebuck, CEO Malaysia & Singapore, Saatchi & Saatchi. Both Goh and Roebuck confirmed the departure to Marketing.

Roebuck also confirmed that several other senior staff have left Saatchi & Saatchi.  This includes regional business directors Sidharth Loyal and Jonathan Holburt, who is set to leave soon.

Loyal is now head of strategic planning at Innocean Worldwide Australia. Loyal managed clients such as Cairn Energy and Mondelez International while Holburt handled the Mead Johnson business for Asia and the Middle East.

Replacements will be announced shortly, Roebuck added.

The agency has also seen other senior level exits earlier. Both head of planning Melanie Cook and regional creative director Andy Greenway of the agency left to join SapientNitro.
