LONDON--Annabel Dunstan is departing 3 Monkeys, after eight years with the UK firm.

Dunstan, who moved into a part-time role at the start of this year, was MD of 3 Monkeys from 2006 until 2009, before sharing MD duties with Christine Jewell until the end of 2010. She has been with 3 Monkeys since its launch in 2003. Prior to that, she spent two years at 3 Monkeys founder/CEO Angie Moxham’s previous agency, Le Fevre.

Dunstan told the Holmes Report that she had some “projects in mind”, after she leaves the agency in July.

The 3 Monkeys board is currently comprised of CEO and founder Angie Moxham, MD Christine Jewell, board directors Stuart Yeardsley and Tristan Pineiro, and FD Greg Tulett. Bill Jones is non-executive director.

“I’ve seen it grow, and now it’s time to move on from a happy jungle family I’ve been at for eight years,” added Dunstan. “It’s very much Angie’s company and I’ve been part of the team that’s led us to where we are.”

Dunstan has played a key business development role in 3 Monkeys’ rapid growth, which has included such wins as Microsoft’s UK consumer business, 3 Mobile and Coca-Cola Enterprises.
