CIA Medianetwork is looking for a replacement for its high-profile

deputy managing director, Josh Dovey, who is leaving the company to take

up a senior post at the largest media agency in South Africa.



Dovey is joining Eurospace Africa, the Hunt Lascaris TBWA and Omnicom

media joint venture in Johannesburg, as managing director. As part of

his remuneration package, he will receive a substantial shareholding in

the company.



Dovey is expected to join Eurospace Africa in early spring, having

worked in the UK for 14 years.



The company has billings of pounds 65 million and a client portfolio

that includes BMW, Standard Bank and the African National Congress.



Dovey said the South African economy and the region’s media markets were

enjoying healthy levels of growth and described his new post as ‘an

exceptional opportunity’. ‘Hunt Lascaris and Omnicom have both

demonstrated their commitment to media as a standalone business,’ he

added.



Mike Tunnicliffe, the CIA managing director, said he was looking both

internally and externally for a general manager to take over Dovey’s

role of handling the day-to-day running of the company. ‘It’s a

brilliant opportunity for someone to help take CIA’s business forward,’

Tunnicliffe said.



He added that Dovey’s client responsibilities will now be shouldered by

other CIA directors.
