Leo Burnett appoints Kyriakou's replacement
In a statement to the media, the agency said that Kyriakou will be leaving the agency for a period of recuperation, due to health reasons.
Meanwhile, Leo Burnett has appointed chief operating officer of Leo Burnett Sydney Josh Grace (pictured) in Kyriakou's place as managing director, Leo Burnett Singapore.
Asia Pacific president Jarek Ziebinski said: "John is leaving the agency in a very good shape but now is the time for John to focus on himself and take care of his health. On behalf of the team, we wish him the very best."
"If ever there was a good time to hand over the reins - this is it,"Kyriakou said.
"I look forward to heading back to the UK to recuperate and take on a new challenge again at some point. The agency is poised to move to its next stage of growth and I couldn't feel more confident about that with Josh and his team."
Grace will begin in his role on 17 September officially while Kyriakou will continue to be with the agency until the end of the year for a smooth transition.
