Cullis, who will not be directly replaced, follows co-founder and managing partner Craig Morgan in leaving the agency after its buyout. Emma Timbers and Martin Semmens are the only other founders to remain.
He joined Elvis in 2004, having worked in the DM agency sector for more than a decade, at the likes of WPP’s Red Cell network, Claydon Heeley and Wunderman. He is a fellow of the IDM, sits on the DMA’s Agencies Council and is a columnist for DecisionMarketing.
During his time at the agency, Elvis has picked up a number of integrated accounts, including HM Revenue & Customs and Virgin Trains.
Joint chief executive Semmens said: “Mike joined Elvis in our early days and has been a huge part of the success of the Elvis brand. Mike has led our success in the direct space and has been a great powerhouse for new business and client growth.
“More importantly than any of that, Mike has become a great friend to me and the agency and will leave his imprint on all of us. Times change and Elvis is constantly evolving, and this is an opportunity for change for Mike and Elvis.”
