Peter McPartlin, CEO of the GroupM agency MediaCom Ireland, is stepping down from the role next after heading up the agency for the past two years.
McPartlin has been one of the leading lights in the advertising and media industry over the last 20 years, having worked for a number of agencies including the likes of Dimension, Irish International, Aegis Media Ireland and Carat. He also spent four years as CEO of the Communicorp-owned TodayFM.
Since joining MediaCom two years ago he has been instrumental in bolstering the agency’s presence in the market. Following his departure the agency’s new leadership team will consist of Ian McGrath, Managing Director, Simon Kennett, Chief Client Officer and the agency’s newly appointed Chief Growth & Operations Officer, Ed Ling who joins from the Dentsu Aegis Ireland-owned agency Isobar./
Paying tribute to his former colleague, MediaCom’s managing director Ian McGrath says: “You only learn by working with Peter. His experience speaks for itself, and he has only the right attitude to be successful in this business. At heart, he’s a people person. Always approachable, energetic and a genuine pleasure to work with.”
