Charles Cadell to step down as McCann Worldgroup Apac president

Charles Cadell is to step down as McCann Worldgroup Asia-Pacific president by the end of the year. The news was first reported by Mumbrella Asia.

In a statement in response to an enquiry from Campaign, McCann Worldgroup confirmed that Alex Lubar, CEO of McCann Worldgroup's London office, would succeed Cadell in the regional role.

“It should be no surprise that McCann Worldgroup always looks for career opportunities for our best people and when Charles Cadell approached [McCann Worldgroup chairman and CEO] Harris Diamond about the idea of transitioning from his regional role over the next year, Alex Lubar was the obvious choice," the statement said. "He will be relocating to the region before the end of the year.”

A spokesperson for McCann in Tokyo, where Cadell is based, said the company was not able to say any more on the transition at this time.

Cadell is among the most experienced agency leaders in APAC. He has been with McCann in the region for the past eight years, initially based in Singapore as Southeast Asia and Australasia head, before becoming APAC president in 2012 and then relocating to Tokyo in 2016 to also lead McCann Worldgroup Japan. 

Before that, he was CEO of Lowe Lintas in India for three years, and spent 11 years at Leo Burnett in Malaysia, Hong Kong and Thailand. 

Lubar has spent three years leading the London operations, having moved from the role of McCann Worldgroup global CMO. He previously worked at Grey and BBH.
