His last day at the company will be 17 February, an out-of-office email revealed. Fawbert’s next move is unclear.

Update: MediaCorp has confirmed that Fawbert has resigned and will be leaving on the above date.

Fawbert told Mumbrella: “I’m proud of my tenure at MediaCorp, working with a dedicated and highly capable team that is ambitious for digital success. From the outset we set ourselves three key targets: to assess the digital opportunity, to create a strategy for development, and to roll out these plans across the separate divisions.”

“Having completed the first two stages I wanted to concentrate on more specialised digital applications, and as a consequence will no longer be a part of the MediaCorp execution team. I continue to offer them my fullest support, and I’m confident that in an industry as compact as digital media that we’ll continue to work together to deliver success in the future,” he said.

In a long career in media, Fawbert has worked on the leadership council of the Interactive Advertising Bureau of Southeast Asia, CBS Outdoor in China and online sales house Aktiv in Singapore, which he co-founded.

In the UK, he worked at BBC Worldwide magazines and Yahoo, where he was head of sales.
