Atomic 212 managing director Ian Czencz exits

The managing director of Atomic 212, Ian Czencz, has resigned. Czencz joined the agency in 2018 from Blue 449, where he had been chief strategy officer.

James Dixon, founding partner, will now be taking on management of Atomic 212’s Sydney office, alongside chairman Barry O’Brien, general manager Tom Sheppard and managing director of Melbourne, Claire Fenner.

Czencz said he was proud of helping Atomic 212 move forward

The agency said Czencz has played a pivotal role in resetting the business and formulating a new strategic direction.

“We thank Ian for his contribution, and wish him every success in the future as he looks to concentrate on his first love – strategy,” said O’Brien.

Czencz added that the agency was ready to move forward.

“Atomic 212 is in a great position to press forward into their next phase of growth, and I’m proud to have played a part in helping them move forward,” he said.

During his career, Czencz has also been in the chief strategy role at Match Media for nine years before the agency rebranded to Blue 449 in late 2016. Upon his departure, Blue 449’s Zara Cobb was promoted to fill Czencz’s role.

Czencz’s next role is not yet clear.
