BMF has appointed Dominic Stinton as CEO, replacing Jeremy Nicholas who stepped down earlier in May.
Stinton joins BMF from international creative agency VCCP, where he served as group MD and a joint founder of VCCP Share, a specialist social media agency with clients including Oasis, MoreThan Insurance, Jelly Belly and Unilever Food Solutions.
Stinton spent nine years at BBH, where he was a board director and head of account management in London and he also helped establish the Singapore operation. He also spent four years at HHCL & Partners after beginning his career at Still Price Lintas.
Stinton also worked client side as marketing director at UK telecommunications company Talk Talk.
BMF founding partner and executive chairman, Matthew Melhuish, said: “Dominic has a terrific pedigree from some world-class agencies, he brings a wealth of experience, an entrepreneurial spirit, and an integrated approach which makes him a great fit for BMF. Warren Brown and myself both met at BBH London and spent six years and five years there respectively, so it is great to have that background in common with Dom. We’re looking forward to welcoming him to Australia and the BMF family.”
Stinton said: “In my career I have been fortunate to work at some of the industry’s best agencies and I believe BMF ranks as a world class agency. The fact that it happens to be based in Australia is an added bonus.”
BBH Group CEO Gwyn Jones said: "Dominic is a great guy and a fantastic adman, a real enthusiast for brands and for the business. He worked at BBH for many years both in London and Singapore and was always a positive injection of energy and creativity to his clients, his teams and to the creative process.
“He has worked client side too and more recently built a social media business so he comes with a fantastic body of experience. I know he will be a great addition to BMF and to the industry in Australia."
Stinton is in the process of relocating his family to Australia and will assume the role in the coming months.
Melhuish will continue to be “highly involved” at BMF over the interim period, a company press release stated.
