In the last couple of years, there have been wholesale change at the top of creative agencies in London, England, with 15 of the top 18 network offices changing their chief executive. The job of chief executive of a top agency in London is not as desirable as it once was. Chief executives at the big agencies receive handsome salaries, however, there are issues with compensation.
