Pippa Glucklich to leave Starcom UK CEO role after 5 years

Pippa Glucklich moves on from Starcom

Media company Starcom UK is saying goodbye to its chief executive Pippa Glucklich who has served in the role for almost half a decade.

Glucklich is resigning to spend more time with family before moving onto ventures new. She steps down in December.

Iain Jacob, Publicis Media chief executive EMEA, told The Drum: “After nearly five years, Pippa Glucklich, has decided to step down from her position and is leaving the agency in December. Pippa will remain in position until the end of the year, working closely with chief executive UK group and president global clients EMEA, Jodie Stranger and the wider Starcom management team. As such, plans for her replacement are currently under development and will be announced in due course.

“I'd like to thank Pippa for her dedication, amazing contribution and the success she has helped deliver for the UK business since joining in 2013. On behalf of the Groupe, I’d like to wish her all the best for the future.”

Glucklich added: "I have had an amazing time at Starcom and I will miss the team enormously, I’m certain they will continue to do great things and go from strength to strength. I'm going to take a few months off with my sons before embarking on the next stage of my career in this fabulous industry."

As a prominent industry figure, Glucklich last contributed to The Drum’s opinion section three months ago with an analysis of the Convervative’s lacklustre election campaign.
