Ward is now in a role at agency Amplify, while three other staff have also left the firm - creative director Mark Millard, account director Jamie Green and head of creative Neil Hooper.
Millard has joined Dot Digital Group as director of marketing communications and Green has joined The Circle Agency as senior account director. Hooper’s current job status is unknown.
Ward, who was promoted to her position in late 2010 to oversee the delivery of B2B experiences, was responsible for accounts including Umbro and Diageo. She has been instrumental in championing the use of technology including QR codes and has been involved in various corporate Olympics projects.
Hugh Robertson, founding partner and chief executive, RPM, said: "[The departees] decided to pursue other opportunities. As you’d expect, in a company of nearly 200 staff, people naturally move on for various reasons. They all did so with our best wishes.
"We are in the process of making several senior hires across areas including creative, corporate and live experience, and these will be announced shortly. We passionately believe an engagement approach should be applied to all customer and consumer groups.
All corporate enquiries at RPM are currently directed to head of business development Chris Walsh.
