Another global chief creative officer fired over allegations of misconduct, this time from McCann

Australian expat adman Jeremy Perrott has become the latest global creative boss to be fired for inappropriate behaviour.

McCann Health terminated the global chief creative officer’s employment yesterday after an internal investigation over allegations Perrott had breached the company’s code of conduct, Adweek reports.

Perrott was appointed McCann Health’s global CCO in 2008

Perrott’s sacking follows Ogilvy firing its worldwide chief creative officer, Tham Khai Meng, yesterday.

A graduate of Melbourne’s RMIT, Perrott joined McCann Health in 1986 after a stint with Saatchi & Saatchi’s Melbourne office. He was appointed chief creative officer in 2008.

Adweek quotes a McCann Health statement over the dismissal: “We received a complaint about a violation of our Code of Conduct by McCann Health’s Jeremy Perrott.

“As a result, following an investigation, he is no longer with the company.”

“Our foremost priority is to foster a workplace where people are respected and valued, and importantly, an environment where people feel safe and protected to come forward to report actions that run counter to our values and code of conduct.”

McCann Health’s worldwide office has been contacted for comment.
