by Michela Galante , AdForum

Mick Mahoney, the executive creative director at Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R, is to leave the agency.

Mark Roalfe, the chairman and executive creative director, is to take charge of creative direction.

The agency is looking to hire a team of creative directors who will report into Roalfe. They will have "an increased level of autonomy".

Mahoney is looking for other opportunities within and outside the WPP network, which owns RKCR/Y&R, as well as the possibility of setting up a start-up. He will leave the shop in September.

He joined RKCR/Y&R in 2013 from Havas Worldwide London where he was the executive creative director from 2009. Read more: http://bit.ly/1Gcv0DJ
