Thomas joined in December 2005 from Nylon, the communications planning agency that he helped found.

It is not believed he will be directly replaced when he leaves. His duties will be taken on by the strategy team, which is overseen by Marie Oldham, strategy director at MPG.

Mark Craze, managing partner at MPG, said: "We respect Martin's decision and we wish him well. We already have a very strong strategy team in place that will ensure continuity and a top-flight service to clients."

Before helping to found Nylon in 2004, he was communications director for WPP Group's Mediaedge:cia. He comes from a background in PR, having been UK managing director of Cohn & Wolfe.

He said: "MPG is a terrific agency with a clear vision and a wonderful team of experienced people. But I have decided what I really want to do is set up my own consultancy. I feel I've reached a stage where it's time to do my own thing."
