NEW YORK--Porter Novelli CFO and president Anthony Viceroy, the last remaining member of the firm's global leadership triumvirate, is departing for a role in the healthcare industry.
When contacted by the Holmes Report, Viceroy said that he will become CFO of healthcare management company WestMed Practice Partners, but declined to make any further comment.
Industry sources told the Holmes Report that Viceroy had been planning to depart the firm for several months, but delayed his move during a tumultous period that saw downsizing and the loss of the firm's key Gillette business last year.
His departure follows the news that global CEO Gary Stockman will soon bring an end to his four-year tenure heading the company. Earlier this year, Porter-Novelli president Julie Winskie also left the agency. In between, CMO Michael Goldberg exited following a short-lived stint at the firm.
The Omnicom Group agency is currently seeking a new CEO; in the interim the firm will be led by strategy director Michael Ramah.
Viceroy arrived in 2009, after spending six years as SVP of financial management at parent company Omnicom's DAS division. Before that, he was treasurer at Novo Nordisk.
