Mainardo de Nardis, executive vice-chairman of Omnicom Media Group, will be leaving the company after 38 years. Until last year, he was global CEO of OMD. As he moved to the new position, Florian Adamski took over.
“We’re getting to the point where our industry is closing a chapter and opening a new one, and I want to be a part of the new, not the old,” de Nardis told Adweek.
In the same interview, he indicated that he plans to remain within the advertising world albeit not at a holding group or network.
He started his career as an account supervisor at Y&R Italy back in 1980 and has since worked with agencies across big networks such as WPP and Dentsu.
