Nick Bender, one of the founding directors of Touch Associates, the Leatherhead-based agency, has retired.
Before joining Touch, Bender had spent more than twenty years with the Thomas Cook Group, including eleven years in Australia, and then spells with CVL, Maritz and the Grass Roots Group, where he finished as global director of event management, before joining Patrick Collins, Colette Murphy and Mike Ford at Touch.
"This is all about achieving my life plan and spending more time with my wife and family - and knocking off some of those bucket list items," said Bender.
"I have thoroughly enjoyed the last seven years as part of a fabulous team at Touch, building such a creative agency. I am very proud of our achievements, award-winning work, good numbers and that, as well as being part of an agency that truly believes in culture over strategy, we really have practised getting the culture right."
"I am looking forward to a change of pace and starting a new chapter in my life. I hope to continue my association with our industry – and will definitely maintain the many industry friendships I have grown over the years."
