Saatchi & Saatchi London’s joint chief creative officer Paul Silburn has left the agency after eight years.

He leaves the agency without another role lined up.

His departure comes 17 months after he was promoted to the agency’s top creative role alongside Kate Stanners. While Stanners headed up the creative for Saatchi & Saatchi London’s international and global clients, Silburn looked after the Direct Line account in the UK. All other London-based briefs were headed by Rob Potts and Andy Jex, who were both promoted to the roles vacated by Silburn and Stanners in June. Direct Line will now be handled by Potts and Jex, and Stanners will continue as the creative lead on international clients.

Magnus Djaba, chief executive of Saatchi & Saatchi Fallon UK group, said: “Paul is one of the best advertising craftsmen not just in London, but in the world, and his input and influence over the past eight years have been invaluable. We wish him every success for the future.”

Silburn joined the creative outfit in November 2007 and gained plaudits for work including 'No nonsense' campaign for John Smiths, 'Bear Fight' for John West Salmon, 'Royal Wedding' and 'Dance' for T-Mobile.
