UK – Tracey De Groose, chief executive of UK & Ireland, at Dentsu Aegis Network has announced she is stepping down after four years in the role.


Her successor has yet to be announced, but in the interim Giulio Malegori, CEO for EMEA, will work with her to ensure a smooth transition of responsibilities.

De Groose (pictured) joined Dentsu Aegis Network in 2009, initially as UK CEO for Carat, before being promoted to UK & Ireland CEO in 2014.  

She said: “After eight wonderful years at Dentsu Aegis, I have decided that now is the right time to step down. I have loved every moment of working with this incredibly talented team of people and I am extremely proud of everything that we have achieved. Together we have transformed this business, nearly doubled its revenue, and welcomed new agencies and colleagues into the family.”

Malegori added: “Tracy has been a great asset for our UK business which has been growing both organically and via strategic and relevant acquisitions. More importantly Tracy has built a very strong leadership team in the UK.”
