Chief Creative Officer Gabriela Lungu Quits Weber Shandwick

LONDON—Gabriela Lungu is stepping down from her role as chief creative officer at Weber Shandwick EMEA, after less than two years with the firm.

Lungu joined Weber Shandwick in early 2013 following a successful career leading Romanian PR firm The Practice. She was initially named consumer practice head for Weber Shandwick EMEA before shifting to the chief creative officer role six months later.

In the latter position, she has spent much of her time developing and delivering creative training to the firm's 20 offices across the UK and EMEA.

She will remain with the firm until the start of 2015, before determining her next move. Lungu declined to comment when contacted by the Holmes Report.

“Gabriela has had a great two years with us – her first non-Romania, big PR agency role," said Weber Shandwick UK and EMEA CEO Colin Byrne.

"She has been a real change agent, embedding and empowering creative teams across our network and rolling out a thirty office Creative Revolution training programme. We wish her well for her next role, in whatever discipline and country that may be."
