Simon Labbett and David Gamble: step down at RKCR/Y&R

Labbett and Gamble co-founded Saint with Adam Graham in May 2007 and have been responsible for managing the agency's strategy and group positioning.

Labbett and Gamble's departure confirms a tumultuous end to the year at RKCR/Y&R. Chief executive Richard Exon and executive creative director Damon Collins announced they would be leaving in early 2012 less than three months ago.

Graham left Saint@RKCR/Y&R in September to become chief executive of Weapon 7. RKCR/Y&R clients include Marks & Spencer, Warburtons, Virgin Atlantic and Lloyds TSB.

Alison Hoad, joint chief executive of RKCR/Y&R, said: "We are sad to see Simon and Dave leave after many successful years at the agency but wish them the best of luck with their future projects."
