Richards (pictured) was appointed in April 2018 to grow and scale the business, following its restructure to seven disciplines.

Before joining Unlimited, he was international managing director at VCCP.

The company has not confirmed who will replace Richards, but said it will be announced soon.

Tim Bonnet, president at Unlimited Group, said: "Michael Richards joined the Unlimited Group 12 months ago to help drive new business efforts across the group and has now made the decision to move on to a new challenge.

"A replacement will be announced shortly, as the group completes its third acquisition in 12 months, welcoming DirectionGroup Unlimited into the fold this month."

Unlimited announced it had acquired B2B marketing agency DirectionGroup a month ago. The company bought analytics consultancy Model Citizens in March and B2B content and marketing agency First Base last year.
