Egmont’s CEO international, Rob McMenemy, departs the company

Egmont Publishing has announced the departure of Rob McMenemy, the firm’s CEO international.

Following the successful implementation of Egmont Publishing’s new global strategy and the formation of two new global units in 2015, McMenemy has decided to leave Egmont.

“Having seen through the development of the kid’s business into a more global publishing operation, the time is right to move on," said McMenemy.

"After 22 very happy years with Egmont this was not an easy decision to make, but it is time for another challenge.”

Torsten Bjerre Rasmussen, CEO of Egmont Publishing, added: “I would like to thank Rob not just for the success he has brought to Egmont over many years, but also his leadership in steering the kid’s business to the next stage of its future.”
