Vizeum's joint MD Andrews departs for Mother

LONDON - Matt Andrews, joint managing director of media agency Vizeum, has left the agency after five years to join Mother.

Grant Millar, Vizeum's joint managing director, confirmed that Andrews was leaving the agency to take a strategy role at Mother. Mother has yet to confirm the move.

Matthew Hook, head of strategy at Vizeum, will be taking over Andrews' strategy duties, according to Millar.

Millar said: "We've got two senior strategists arriving in August and September to join him, although we have not announced who they are yet.

"It's a shame to lose Matt. He's worked for us for five years, three years with me as joint managing director. It's been brilliant working with him but he leaves the agency in the best possible position."

He added: "Five years is a long time in one role in this industry. He's delivered most of the objectives he set himself, and we've built up a very strong strategy team around him."

Andrews's departure follows the exit of Vizeum's managing partner Ben Wood, who is currently working out his notice before leaving the agency next month to join online ad network TradeDoubler.

Vizeum has also hired Patrick Affleck from Profero to fill the newly created role of head of digital strategy. He joins the agency in August.

The new appointees will be working alongside senior strategist Chris Stephenson on Vizeum's two of its flagship accounts, Coca-Cola and Eurostar.
