Johan Hofstra, the president of DMB&B’s operations in Europe, the

Middle East and Africa, has abruptly resigned as the agency restructures

its worldwide operations.



Hofstra, who has worked for DMB&B for ten years, is to leave on 1

August.



Arthur Selkowitz, the chairman and chief executive of DMB&B, has assumed

Hofstra’s responsibilities immediately. Selkowitz confirmed that Hofstra

was leaving ’to pursue other interests’.



It is believed that the position will be restructured so that a number

of people can take on Hofstra’s regional responsibilities.



Selkowitz added: ’We have been looking for some time at the way we are

organised as the needs of our clients and the world changes. One of the

things that is obvious about this business is that it is not standing

still, and we have looked at all facets to see if the structure and

hierarchy is appropriate as we go forward. We are looking at significant

changes in the company from a geographical standpoint, which will be

revealed in the relatively near future.’
