Brand New Media managing director Simon Joyce departs after just six months

Simon JoyceManaging director of Brand New Media Simon Joyce has announced his departure just six months after taking the role. 

The former MCM boss announced that he was leaving to “pursue a new opportunity.”

Brand New Media announced the surprise departure this morning with Joyce saying: “It’s been an honour to work with Perry and lead the Australian team and I have no doubt that the business will continue on its growth path both in Australia and internationally.

“Personally, I would have loved to be part of this future growth, however the opportunity to start something new was too good to refuse.”

Perry Smith, global CEO,  of Brand New Media said Joyce had made an important contribution to the branded entertainment business during his time as managing director.

“Simon has made a very valuable contribution to our business and leaves us in great shape for a big year ahead,” said Joyce. “Personally I would like to thank Simon for the hard work and the effort he has put in to help make our company stronger. With the recent product additions and a market leading team in place, BNM is well set for growth in 2015.”

Joyce’s last day at Brand New Media will be Friday, January 30 with his next move to be announced “in due course”.
