Alistair MacCallum has been named UK chief executive of M/SIX, just four months after he departed rival M2M when it was abruptly shut. MacCallum joins M/SIX on 1 February as its parent, The & Partnership, prepares to take on Toyota’s £240m European media and creative account. He said he was attracted by the combination of The & Partnership’s ownership structure – with staff having majority control – and access to WPP’s Group M, which co-owns M/SIX in a joint venture. MacCallum said: "The combination of a truly integrated independent agency network, aligned with the strength of WPP, means there are incredible foundations in place to deliver against the clear ambition for the business." Jess Burley is global chief executive of M/SIX, which has been winning a growing number of international clients. MacCallum’s appointment to the role will allow her to focus beyond the UK.
