Daniela Fania, managing director of IT specialist Herald

Communications’ Milan office, has quit the agency just two months after

launching its Italian operation.



Herald recruited Fania from Hewlett Packard, where she was marketing

communications manager. Fania left the agency last week with no

immediate plans. Both Fania and Herald managing director Paul Mathieu

insisted that the decision to go separate ways was mutual and

friendly.



Fania added that there had been a misunderstanding about the extent of

her responsibility. Herald’s structure meant that she did not report

directly to Herald managing director Paul Mathieu, but to Isabelle

Gallemaert, managing director of the agency’s Paris office.



Herald has hired Ariel Mafai to head the Milan office as country

manager.



Mafai was recruited two weeks ago from IT specialist Business Press,

where she was an account executive. She previously spent three years at

Hill and Knowlton.
