Starcom MediaVest Group/The Americas CEO Laura Desmond announced that Dennis Donlin will leave the company, effective April 1st. Donlin is General Manager and President of the agency’s Planwork’s division, a media planning and buying operation dedicated exclusively to General Motors.

It is simply the right time for me to take stock and consider my next career move, and I want to do that while spending more quality time with my kids, the youngest of which graduates from high school next year,” said Donlin.
