As revealed on PRWeek.com last Thursday, Walters -UK chief for four years - is to return to a client-facing role at MS&L.
‘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 agreed the decision to step back with Hass, and hoped to maintain a ‘senior consultancy role' early next year.
It has not yet been decided if Walters' replacement will come from within MS&L.
