Christensen will leave Mumbrella in mid-August after nearly four years with the title. His previous roles including working as journalist for News Corp’s The Australian and The Daily Telegraph.

Among the major issues Christensen led the reporting on was the ongoing question of lack of transparency in some media agency relationships with their clients. He broke the news of how a dozen staff at media agency Mediacom left the agency after campaign reports to clients were forged, a story which had major implications across the whole industry.

Mumbrella editor Alex Hayes said: “Nic leaves with our very best wishes. He works all hours of the day and night to chase the big stories.

“We’ll miss his tenacity, passion, integrity and sense of humour, but those are all traits that will stand him in good stead to excel in his next role.”

Christensen is currently curating the SAGE – Secrets of Agency Excellence – conference which takes place on October 12, with Madison Avenue Manslaughter author Michael Farmer as the keynote speaker.
