CEO Chris Whitson parts company with MRM Meteorite

Chris Whitson has left MRM Meteorite less than a year after he was promoted to joint chief executive of the agency.

Chris Whitson has stepped down from his role as CEO MRM Meteorite after less than a year to focus on new projects, according to Nicky Bullard, the agency’s chairman.

Having moved to MRM Meteorite last year as chief strategy officer, Whitson was promoted to joint chief executive.

Whitson had previously worked as chief strategy officer at WPP’s bespoke unit for News UK, Team News.

Bullard said the agency was in the process of hiring a new chief strategy officer, but that Olly Foot would remain sole chief executive.
