Nick Garrett to Become CEO of Clemenger BBDO Sydney and Melbourne
Garrett will fill the gap left by Clemenger BBDO Sydney CEO Andy Pontin, who recently announced his plans to leave the agency in 2018
Clemenger BBDO Melbourne CEO, Nick Garrett, is
assuming the role of CEO of the agency's Sydney and Melbourne offices.
This follows the announcement in September that Andy Pontin would be stepping down as CEO of Clemenger BBDO Sydney in early 2018.
BBDO is fortunate to have strong management depth in both Sydney and
Melbourne. In Sydney, the agency is led by the fantastic team of
managing director, Emily Perrett, chief creative officer, Ben Coulson,
and chief financial officer, John Rizoski.
BBDO Melbourne has great leaders in Gayle While as deputy CEO, Simon
Lamplough as managing director, James McGrath as creative chairman and
Paul Rees-Jones as executive planning director.
Says Robert Morgan, executive chairman of the Clemenger Group: "Nick has
demonstrated great leadership in his time at both Colenso BBDO Auckland
and Clemenger BBDO Melbourne. He gets the needs of the new age of
advertising, he's a hunter, is loved by his clients and is a magnet for
talent. He is a passionate believer in the importance of creativity as
our key differentiation. He also makes the complex clear in respect of
being a successful marketer in the digital age.
"We believe that
enhanced inter-agency cooperation and the ability to widen our skills
base while minimizing duplication will enable us to continue to lead in
the new era."view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessClemenger BBDO Sydney, Thu, 14 Dec 2017 01:44:32 GMT
