Hughston, who leaves without a job to go to, will not be replaced. His role will be covered by Michael Rebelo, the incoming managing director, and Peter Lovatt, the vice-chairman. Hughston was previously the managing director of Saatchi & Saatchi Interactive. Hughston was appointed as the new-business director in January, after Adam Kirby's departure.
Neil Hughston, the new-business director at Saatchi & Saatchi, has left the agency after less than six months in the role.
