Staff were told yesterday that he was leaving to take a sabbatical after 20 years in the industry.
In an email, Grey London’s chief executive Leo Rayman said: "I am sure you'll join me in thanking him for all his hard work and his uncompromising attention to craft. We at Grey London will always drive creativity and champion ideas that play into popular culture and Dom has played a huge role in that."
The email went on to say: "We'll be making further announcements about our creative leadership in due course."
Goldman joined Grey in March 2015 as deputy executive creative director and was promoted to ECD that November, overseeing the creative department alongside Vicki Maguire (also ECD) and Perry Nightingale, who joined in the new role of executive creative technologist.
Goldman’s first big piece of work for Grey was the launch campaign for Koovs.com, an Indian website that specialises in Western fashion.
He had previously spent seven years at Bartle Bogle Hegarty London, where he was a creative director and managing partner. In this role, he ran the Weetabix business and created ads for brands including Axe and Asos.
Prior to this, he worked at Media Arts in Singapore and OgilvyOne and Goodby, Silverstein & Partners in San Francisco.
