MPG Global CEO Maria Luisa Francoli Plaza is leaving the agency after 20 years with the shop, the company has confirmed.
A replacement is expected to be announced in the next few weeks.
Signaling the importance that the agency placed on the U.S. market, Francoli Plaza relocated to New York from Spain in 2007. The company has been relatively quiet on the new business front of late, although the shop did manage to retain the Sears Holdings media account late last year after a lengthy review.
Francoli Plaza’s departure comes amid some reshuffling of the senior ranks at two other Havas-owned agenices—Arnold and Havas Worldwide. It was not clear if there was a connection.
