Rob Norman, part of the GroupM senior management team for over a decade, most recently as Chief Digital Officer, is retiring from his full-time role effective in January 2018.
He will remain with the company as an advisor going forward.
Norman has been with GroupM for 31 years, including stops at MEC and a predecessor agency, CIA.
“Happily, this is not goodbye. We thank Rob for his loyal service and for continuing to share his passion and vision for this business as GroupM and the industry continue to evolve,” stated Kelly Clark, Global CEO GroupM. “Rob has been a fantastic partner to our clients, our people and our company, so I’m delighted that he will continue in an advisory capacity.”
“GroupM, WPP and before that CIA have been my work, my life and almost always my pleasure,” stated Norman.
“My friends in the business know that I’ve become very attached to a rural life and understand that after 31 years, it’s time to do other things. It’s a curiosity of our business that few people get to step back, yet stay involved; I’m honored that GroupM is allowing me to do exactly that.”
