Kyme will be stepping back from his day-to-day operations at the agency, after five years of building the creative engine of Eight, as well as overseeing key accounts.

Kyme plans to spend more time on personal projects and with his family, though will continue to be involved in key client accounts at Eight Partnership, as well as playing a consulting role on selected projects where needed.

Charles Brian-Boys, managing partner of Eight Partnership, said: “I will miss his creative enthusiasm and awful sense of humor, but I am reassured that Chris will continue to play an important role with Eight on key accounts,”

"I've had a great five years at Eight, and we've come a long way. We've won awards, where there were none before, hit the front pages with some big news, and grown into a substantial business with some solid, big name clients. I feel I'm leaving Eight in good shape, I'm sure the company will continue to do well," reflected Kyme.
