Head of Europe ad group quits

Published on .

A question mark hangs over the future of the European Advertising Tripartite following the surprise resignation of its director general, Michel Deurinck. Some board members of the association - which represents advertisers, media and agencies - are opposed to the EAT lobbying, and also want corporate members to redirect their membership fees to other Brussels-based associations with more specific missions. However, the majority of the board reportedly want to keep things as they are, but to improve the way the association is run. Mr. Deurinck, who has led the association for the past four years, said he will head up the Brussels office of a U.S.-owned PR agency, which he declined to name, beginning in February.
