Global CEO of Mindshare since 2012, Nick Emery was a founding member of the media agency when it was set up by WPP in 1997.
As reported by several international publications, Mindshare has fired Nick Emery ‘following a clear breach of the company’s code of conduct’. GroupM CEO Christian Juhl will assume the role of interim CEO at Mindshare until the position is filled.
In a statement on the issue, Juhl said, “At GroupM and our agencies, we believe everyone should experience an inclusive and respectful workplace culture.”
“Inappropriate and offensive behaviour is not tolerated in our company, and when we see any employee breach our code of conduct, we take swift action. Mindshare is made up of thousands of dedicated professionals who deliver our promise of making advertising work better for people around the world. We know they share our vision and values and are focused on the future of the business and the needs of their clients,” he added.
