Glenn Tutssel has announced his decision to step down as London chairman of Brand Union.
Simon Bolton CEO of the Brand Union Group confirmed Tutssel's resignation to The Drum and revealed that he would be leaving the business in December.
In a statement Bolton said: “Glenn has been a true leader for the agency, consistently pushing standards, identifying talent and acting as a trusted partner to many clients. Brand Union wishes him the very best as he pursues his many interests in the design world.”
Brand Union was formed in 1997 when Lambie-Nairn and its sister company Tutssels came together to offer clients services spanning television branding, corporate identity, brand packaging design and new media.
In 1999, Sir Martin Sorrell’s WPP Group acquired the agency.
Prior to becoming London chairman Tutssel held the role of executive creative director at Brand Union. His resignation follows former Brand Union chief executive Catherine Gale’s decision to leave the agency to pursue new ventures in early November.
“Glenn is most definitely one of the design greats. A true craftsman. A true gentleman. We’ll miss him, but he remains a great friend to Brand Union,” added Bolton.
Jonny Westcar was named as managing director of the Brand Union at the same time Gale’s resignation was made public.
