He will be succeeded by Christoph Becker, previously chief creative officer at GyroHSR London. Glasson will continue to serve as chairman of the agency during a transition period.
“I’ve enjoyed every second of my time at GyroHSR, working with some exceptional and inspiring people along the way; but now it’s time for a change, and it’s time to hand the reins on to someone who will add his own special chapters to our incredible story,” Glasson said in a statement.
Glasson joined Gyro International in 2002 as chief operations officer. He led the agency through a period of substantial growth, including its merger last year with HSR Business to Business, Cincinnati. GyroHSR has U.S. headquarters in New York.
