Rodney Fitch leaves Fitch

Fitch founder Rodney Fitch is stepping down as chairman of the consultancy.

Fitch will leave the WPP consultancy by the end of the year, and says it is ‘time to move on and seek other challenges in support of the design community’.

He adds, ‘Fitch is simply the best business of its kind in the world. With the appointment of Lois Jacobs as chief executive earlier this year we are in a strong position to benefit as the landscape for exemplary creative work continues.’

Jacobs, formerly international president of Jack Morton Worldwide, joined as global chief executive of Fitch in April, taking the chief executive responsibilities from Fitch. She says her responsibilities and the management structure will remain the same in the wake of Fitch’s departure.

Jacobs adds, ‘I have had an enjoyable and inspiring few months working alongside Rodney in the company he founded many years ago. I am proud to be leading it and I wish him well in his future endeavours.’

Rodney Fitch founded Fitch in 1972.

    Rodney has had an extraordinary career. His influence and vision will be missed. He is nor replaceable. I wish him the good luck.

    One of the industry greats…a fantastic man to work with. The industry needs a new generation of leaders to follow in his footsteps
