Amaze prepares for three more senior departures

Amaze is set for the departure of three senior figures from the company, with its chief technology officer Matt Clarke, chief commercial officer Wendy Stonefield and chief strategy officer Rick Curtis having all resigned.


The three are set to leave the St Ives owned agency in March, its newly appointed chief executive Tony Murphy confirmed to The Drum. It is not yet clear whether they plan to begin their own startup together or seek new employment separately.

“Alex Comyn, who is currently strategy director at Amaze, will be replacing Rick as chief strategy officer and we are currently looking for replacements for Matt and Wendy’s posts," said Murphy.

“We wish Wendy, Matt and Rick all the best in their next career moves and thank them for their valuable input over the years. However, change always brings new and exciting opportunities and Amaze is well positioned with its spirit, vision and creativity to develop and deliver cutting edge digital solutions on an international scale.”

The three leave not long after a restructure within the digital agencies of St Ives saw Murphy take over from Natalie Gross, with the combined responsibility for sister agencies Realise and Branded3 as well.
