Publicis Chemistry chief executive Mike Welsh is to leave the business following nearly three years in the role.

Welsh, who joined the group in 2008 as chief executive of its direct marketing agency Publicis Dialog, which was later merged with Chemistry Communications to form Publicis Chemistry, will leave from today (24 April) but is understood to be set to continue to advise in a part-time non-executive role.

He took on the job of chief executive at Publicis Chemistry in 2012.

The Drum understands that his duties will be shared by the senior management team of executive creative director, David Prideaux, chief strategy officer, Kevin Allen and the newly appointed head of client services, Emma Rush, all reporting to Publicis’ UK group chief executive, Guy Wieynk.

Publicis London declined to comment when approached by The Drum.
