コーティア―氏は「MECで成し遂げたことを大いに誇りに思っており、極めて特別なエージェンシーでユニークな人々と一緒に仕事ができたことを光栄に思う。しかし、別の仕事に移り第2の人生をスタートするにはちょうどよい時期である」と語った。

グループエムのアーウィン・ゴトリーブ会長は「コーティア―氏はMECの世界拡大に寄与した。同氏はクライアントの成長の実現を重視する確固たる文化と、長期にわたる世界のトップ5エージェンシーでの地位をMECに残してくれた。われわれは彼に感謝し、新しい人生での成功を祈る」と語った。

カストリー氏はニューヨークを本拠として、グループエムのケリー・クラーク・グローバルCEOに直属する。カストリー氏はMECのグローバル首脳部と協力してMECのクライアントサービスの卓越、製品開発、事業拡大に向けた構想と戦略を履行する。同氏は新しい役割に20年以上の経験を注ぎ込み、クリエーティブ、メディアおよびデジタルエージェンシーを拡大する。同氏は北米のVideologyのマネジングディレクターを務め、エージェンシー、クライアント、メディア企業向けの革新的なプログラマティック・ビデオソリューションを開発した。

同氏はVideologyに入社する前、パブリシス・グループのMedeiavestの米国最高執行責任者(COO)で、アメリカ・ホンダモーター、モンデリーズ、コカ・コーラ、マイクロソフト、Sprintなど主要クライアント向けの業務を率いた。それ以前は、Starcom MediaVest Groupのグローバル・マネジングディレクターを務め、70カ国におよぶ世界規模のP&G関連業務を率いた。同氏はオーストラリア・メルボルンのLeo Burnettでキャリアを開始、その後FCB、オグルヴィ、BBHを歴任した。

クラーク氏は、「カストリー氏は実績のあるリーダーであり、MECにビジョンと活力をもたらすだろう。同氏はクライアント、そして彼らが今日の極めて複雑で競争的なマーケットを勝ち抜くのに必要とすることに鋭く集中する。クライアント、エージェンシー、そして多岐にわたる経験はMEDのチームが成長を続けることに寄与するだろう」と述べた。
