Wataru Kageyama steps down from JWT Japan

Kageyama.jpgJWT Japan's Chief Executive Officer Wataru Kageyama has resigned, due to personal reasons.

JWT Japan has made great strides in diversifying its revenue and client base in the last few years, during which a strong and unified management team has emerged to lead the company and anticipate the needs of the agency's globally-minded Japanese multinational clients.

Effective immediately, Tom Doctoroff, JWT's North Asia Area Director, will assume the role of CEO JWT Japan working directly with the management team until a new leader is appointed.

"We would like to extend our appreciation to Kageyama for his contributions during the past three years and wish him the best in all his future endeavours," said Michael Maedel, President, JWT Asia Pacific.
