Steak UK MD steps down after six months

Steak UK MD Mary Keane-Dawson is stepping down from her day-to-day role at the media agency after less than six months.

Keane-Dawson joined at the start of the year having previously been chief marketing officer at GlobalCast Networks in China. She’s leaving by mutual consent, with co-founder and group CEO Oliver Bishop taking charge.

Keane-Dawson will continue consulting for Steak one day a week before starting an MBA later in the year.

Bishop told new media age, “We’ve both agreed it’s best for the company for her to step down. She will be working on a consultancy basis once a week to ensure a smooth transition.”

Steak, which won Media Agency of the Year at the 2007 IMA Awards, has clients including John Lewis, British Gas and Time Out.
