Everson (pictured) joins the agency’s Sydney leadership team, and his appointment follows the recent announcement that Jenny Willits has been promoted to general manager in Sydney.

Willits said: “We are absolutely delighted Paul is joining the team. Paul has shown himself to be an amazing operator and stand-out performer primarily due to his desire to create the best work for his clients at all times.”

Everson will be responsible for leading a 20-strong account management team and will also oversee and manage clients J&J and Nestle.

He said: “JWT was an exciting prospect for me. I believe in the vision that John Gutteridge and Jenny have for the agency. It’s great to be joining a team that values the client relationships and the creative product as much as I do.”
