Maier, whose arrival at MCM was reported in the November/December issue of C&IT, will be responsible for TFI’s business development function – growing revenues with existing and new clients.

Neil Crespin, MCM's founder and chairman, told C&IT that the split was "amicable", adding that his agency is in the midst of recruiting a replacement for Maier.

Maier said: "This is such a brilliant opportunity to be part of an agency that has a fabulous track record for international delivery and creativity, and one that really understands client strategies.

"I’m grateful to MCM for the chance to work with them, albeit for a short time, but once I knew of the dynamic opportunity presented with TFI, with all its international possibilities, then I felt that this is the perfect place for me to be."

William Jeavons. TFI Group's general manager and director, added: "He has an innate knowledge of what clients need and want and is passionate about ensuring that delivery exceeds expectation.

"In particular, he is adept at ensuring that an event, as part of a client’s communications’ strategy, stays on message and on brand. His skills are exactly what TFI needs in continuing our strategy for growth."
