Tajer, who was named global COO in January 2014 will be relocating full-time to New York from Sydney, where he currently spends a portion of his time as CEO of the group's Australian operations.
 
A spokesperson for Mediabrands further added that Tajer would continue to helm the Australian operations until 1 May where replacements for both his roles should be in place. 
 
“In his role as chairman for the balance of this year, we’ll look to Matt to continue providing a broad strategic vision for the group, which is something that’s made us a leader in digital and data-enabled marketing,” commented Michael Roth, chairman and CEO of Interpublic. 
 
Roth credited Tajer with turning Australia into a "growth engine" for the network by creating a collaborative work environment which encourages new capabilities to come to the fore. “Henry is a great media executive, who is valued by our people, clients and media partners."
