LONDON – (August 23, 2010) – Richard Glasson has decided to step down as CEO of gyro (GyroHSR), the leading b2b agency. Richard will serve as chairman for a period of transition as Christoph Becker takes on the role of CEO. 

Richard joined gyro eight years ago, and has led the company, first as chief operations officer and then as chief executive officer, through a period of extraordinary growth to build an award winning agency that, following last year’s merger with gyro, dominates the b2b agency charts in both Europe and the US. 

Richard Glasson said: “I’ve enjoyed every second of my time at gyro, working with some exceptional and inspiring people along the way, but now it’s time for a change, and it’s time to hand the reins on to someone who will add his own special chapters to our incredible story”. 

David Bell, chairman of Slipstream, “I’d like to thank Richard for all he has achieved in his time at gyro. He has led the organization through huge growth and change, and I wish him all the best in whatever he chooses to do next.”
