Manning Selvage & Lee London CEO Walters leaves role

Manning Selvage & Lee London CEO Nicholas Walters is to 'step down' from the role early next year.

Walters, who has been the company's UK number one for four years, is to return to a client-facing role at MS&L.

‘After four years in charge it is time to go back to the floor,' said Walters. ‘Mark Hass [global CEO] and I will now put a lot of thought into a succession plan.'

Walters said he had made the decision to step back jointly with Hass and he hoped to take up a ‘senior consultancy role' around February or March. He will work on clients including De Beers.

No decision has yet been made on whether Walters' replacement will be from inside MS&L or an external appointment.

Walters joined MS&L in January 2003 after an industry hiatus (PRWeek, 10 Jan 2003). He had previously been GCI Asia-Pacific chairman.
