Alison Canning, founder of Cohn & Wolfe and former UK CEO of Burson-Marsteller and international president at Edelman, is understood to have stood down from her non-exec board position in recent months.

Former Boots finance director Howard Dodd has also agreed to stand down from his non-exec role at the City agency.

Tulchan founder Andrew Grant confirmed Canning’s departure and said that Dodd would stand down at the end of the agency’s financial year.

Following their departures, Tulchan will recruit two new non-execs in the New Year to support the development of the firm.

It is thought that one senior figure from the private equity industry has already agreed to join the Tulchan board and will be confirmed in January. The agency is understood to be seeking a second non-exec with a corporate background.

Earlier this year, Tulchan changed from a limited company to a LLP structure. Since the switch a number of senior consultants including James Bradley, Andrew Honnor and Mal Patel have left the agency.

However, this year Tulchan has also picked up high-profile briefs from Lloyds Banking Group and G4S and recruited Interbrand’s Neil Duffy as managing partner.
