Marianne Bess to leave Droga5

One of the founding partners of the Australian office of ad agency Droga5 is to depart. The agency has announced that Sydney MD Marianne Bess is to return to the US.

She said: “When we started the company, there was only three of us, no business and just big dreams.

“Five years on, we’re close to 100 people and working on many of Australia’s most respected brands. I wouldn’t have missed a moment of it, but now it’s time to focus more on my personal life.”

CEO Sudeep Gohil said: “I speak for all the partners when I say I wish her only the very best for this next chapter in her life.”

There are no immediate plans to replace Bess, who leaves this month.
