LONDON: The co-founder of UK-headquartered media network PHD, David Pattison has resigned from his role as worldwide ceo and will leave next year.

The company, which became part of the Omnicom Group marketing services conglomerate in 1998, was rolled out as a global network this year with the opening of key offices in Southeast Asia, China and New Zealand.

Comments Pattison: "I've been at PHD for 17 years, I've done six years since the end of my earnout from Omnicom and PHD could not be in better shape, so it feels the right time to move on."
