Dentsu Aegis Network has lost another UK and Ireland executive with the news that Nick Waters is departing the holding company after just a year as executive chairman.

Waters is the latest in a series of high-profile exits and changes at the business.

He joined to DAN’s London-based business from Singapore in February to replace Stef Calcraft, who was appointed executive chairman in January 2018 but stayed less than a year. Calcraft himself had been brought in to run the agency’s UK and Ireland business, in effect filling a void left by the departure of chief executive Tracey de Groose, who stepped down in the autumn of 2017.

In February 2019, DAN appointed Euan Jarvie as UK and Ireland chief executive. Waters has been working alongside him since his arrival.

DAN told Campaign that there are "no immediate plans to replace" Waters.

Waters joined the group in 2010 as chief executive of Aegis Media Asia-Pacific. Following its acquisition by Dentsu, he became chief executive of the region for DAN.
