Euro RSCG chief leaves amid group restructure

Euro RSCG chief executive Paul Bennett has left the agency as part of a wider shake up of the Havas-owned group which will see The Furnace move to the same building as its sister agency.  

The Furnace chief executive Anthony Gregorio will now take on the new role of group chief executive, which also includes PR agency The Red Agency and employer marketing agency The Face.

In other personnel changes, The Furnace’s head of strategy planning Tony Singleton will become the Sydney agency’s new managing director. Andrew Knox, presently group head at Euro RSCG, has been promoted to general manager of the agency, while Trudi New will move from her role as group head to head of account management and new business.

The restructure of the Australian operations will  see The Furnace’s Sydney office move from its Kent Street location, to the same North Sydney building as Euro and the two other Havas agencies.

Cost saving measures will also see the four agencies sharing more resources in areas such as finance, admin and production.

Bennett is the fourth CEO to leave Euro in six years.
