CEO of major creative agency Host Suzie Shaw has stepped down from the agency, Mumbrella can reveal.

Shaw first joined the agency as an account director in January 2011 before being promoted to the newly created MD role in July that year. She was promoted to the CEO role in January 2013.

Anthony Freedman, founder of Host, confirmed Shaw’s departure, telling Mumbrella: “Suzie has been a valuable member of our team for around four years and we are sad to see her go.”

Freedman told Mumbrella Shaw’s CEO position will not be filled with senior members of Host picking up her duties.

It is understood Shaw has left for family reasons.

Shaw’s departure follows the agency picking up the Toohey’s account earlier this month and winning the Pizza Hut account in November.
