Lee (pictured) said she would stay in the media industry but did not have a clear plan at the moment.

Elaine Ip, CEO of Omnicom Media Group China, also confirmed the move. "She has been instrumental in driving OMD's growth from a small operation in 2005 to what it is today — a successful and well-respected agency brand in China," said Ip, "On behalf of the company, I wish her all the very best in her future endeavours."

The new chief executive of OMD China, Siew Ping Lim, will be taking over the reins working together with Lee during the transition period.

A Hong Kong native, Lee has been a prominent senior executive at several 4A media agencies in China since 1991.
