The managing director of Starcom Melbourne, Peter Toone, has resigned and will leave the agency at the end of the year.

Toone: Looking for new opportunities 

The agency is currently searching for his replacement. 

Toone has been with Starcom for 11 years, working in roles including account director and group business director. He was appointed as Melbourne general manager in 2012 before moving into the managing director role in early 2016.

Toby Barbour, CEO at Starcom, said Toone had been a loyal and valued leader for the Melbourne office.

“On behalf of Starcom’s staff and clients, we would like to offer our sincere thanks to Peter for his commitment and leadership and wish him all the very best for the future as he seeks new opportunities,” Barbour said.

Toone said: “I have enjoyed an amazing 11 years with Starcom and have had the pleasure of working with some of the brightest people and most innovative clients in the country. The agency has grown and evolved enormously and I leave the business knowing it will continue to thrive moving forward. The time is right for me to move on and explore new opportunities in my career.”

It is not yet clear what Toone’s plans are for his next role.
