TBWALondon executive creative director Steve Henry is stepping down after two years in the role.

The move comes weeks the London agency restructured its creative department and promoted Al Young to deputy executive creative director.

He was appointed from United London in May 2006. The co-founder of Howell Henry Chaldecott Lury in 1987 which later became United, left United at the same time as the resignation of the network’s then European president Amanda Walsh.

Group President Tim Lindsay says: “Steve is a big figure in the industry and has made a commensurately major contribution during his two years at the agency.”

Henry says: “It’s been a fantastic trip, and I wouldn’t have changed it for the world. But I want to move on to a different challenge now, and with a number of senior hirings bedded in, now’s the time.”
