The exec plans to “take some time off” from the media world and apply his expertise to the fight against climate change. His last day at the London HQ was today (6 January).

Sarah Personette, the company’s vice-president of global client solutions, is currently working with Twitter’s leadership to headhunt the next EMEA chief.

Daisley held the title of UK managing director before being promoted to lead its European, Middle East and African business in 2015. He was previously director of YouTube in the UK for Google, which he joined after a nine-year stint in sales and digital at Emap.

Known for his own irreverent social presence as much as his business leadership, Daisley has hosted the podcast Eat Sleep Work Repeat since 2017.

Its success led him to become a thought leader on modern working culture.

“This week I reached a milestone of eight years at Twitter,” he posted on the platform.

“I decided it's time for a change ... I feel so lucky to have worked on a product I love with the best people in the world. What an honour.”

Personette called Daisley “a true partner to me, the entire global team and to our client partners around the world”, while Twitter’s current UK managing director, Dara Nasr, said: “Working with Brucey has been a total privilege – becoming a friend of his, even more of one.”
