Dentsu Aegis Network CEO Jerry Buhlmann to stand down

Dentsu Aegis Network chief executive Jerry Buhlmann is to step down with Tim Andree set to combine his current responsibilities with those of the newly vacant role.

Jerry joined Aegis Group plc in 1999, becoming CEO in 2010 and then CEO of Dentsu Aegis Network in March 2013 after the acquisition of Aegis Group plc by Dentsu Inc.

“After nine years as CEO of Dentsu Aegis Network and before that Aegis Group plc, I am very proud of what the organisation has achieved in that time,” Buhlmann said.

Buhlmann, who turns 59 this month, steps down on 31 December and will become a special adviser to Dentsu.
