Saatchi & Saatchi has promoted Magnus Djaba to the role of global president, following the decision by global chief executive Robert Senior to step down.

Djaba, currently UK chief executive of Saatchi & Saatchi Fallon, has led Saatchi & Saatchi’s London office since 2011, and will retain responsibility for the UK business alongside his new global remit.

Mr. Djaba will work closely with Kate Stanners, worldwide chief creative officer and chairwoman of Saatchi, and David Hackworthy, worldwide chief strategy officer.

Robert Senior, global CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi, will step down from his role in three months, but will continue to serve as an adviser to Publicis Communications CEO Arthur Sadoun throughout the rest of the year.
