The Week: People News - Murphy departs Mindshare

Kevin Murphy has left Mindshare less than six months after being appointed as its global client and business development director.

The 37-year-old left the WPP agency at the end of last year to become the managing director of McCann Erickson's 20-strong media department in Birmingham. Murphy cited the international travel requirements of Mindshare's Zurich account as a key factor in his departure.
