Katrina Stratton, group business director at UM in Melbourne, has left after less than a year in a period of considerable change in the agency’s management team.

Stratton joined UM Melbourne in June last year from OMD, where she was business director on Mazda. She is understood to be interviewing at other agencies.

Her departure comes soon after UM Melbourne’s former MD David Angell left after just five months in the role to join the media department at Target – a client that Stratton ran at UM.

Angell replaced Wendy Gower as MD in August last year. Gower spent just 12 months as MD of UM Melbourne before moving on to Sydney, and then APN Outdoor.

UM Melbourne’s current MD is Kim Lion, who has been in the role since January, having moved from Sydney where she was UM’s national chief client officer.

UM was unavailable for comment at the time of writing.
