Sosuke Koyama has resigned from his position as executive planning director of Beacon Communications (part of Publicis One’s Tokyo office) to take up an undisclosed position at Facebook, also in Tokyo.

Koyama took on his role at Publicis in 2014, having also worked for the company in Shanghai. He has worked at numerous other agencies including BBH and Wieden + Kennedy and in markets including the US and Singapore.

Koyama did not comment on the move. Floriane Tripolino, managing director of Publicis One Japan, said the company had hired a new chief strategy officer, who will start on 1 October. She was not able to provide specific details but said the new hire came from the client side.

In February, Publicis One changed its creative leadership, with Erick Rosa replacing Jon King, who had been at the company for 12 years.

Other major appointments Facebook Japan has made from the agency side include that of Jun Fukawa, who became head of the company's creative division after a global position at JWT in London.
