"SAATCHI SYDNEY IN THE HUNT FOR A NEW WORLD-CHANGING ECD

Saatchi & Saatchi Sydney is undertaking a worldwide search for a new ECD following the resignation of Damon Stapleton.

Stapleton, who joined newly appointed CEO Michael Rebelo in January 2012, will leave the agency in mid-June to pursue new opportunities overseas.

Rebelo paid tribute to Stapleton, describing him as “a great creative leader, one of the funniest and nicest guys in the business who will be missed by all."

“On behalf of the whole George Street team, we wish Damon and his family all the very best as they embark on a new adventure,” he says.

“Damon has been a key part of the team that have taken Saatchi & Saatchi Sydney to where it is today. There is still lots more to play for creatively, but we’re grateful for the impact Damon has made on our business and our culture,” Rebelo says.

Quote from Damon: “Saatchi Sydney has been my crazy Aussie family. It’s a special agency. When you walk through the front door you feel like special things can happen. I’m very proud of what we’ve achieved and I know the agency is going to be enormously successful in the future.”

Rebelo says Stapleton’s departure presents a new opportunity for Saatchi Sydney to further push the agency’s creative product.

“Damon has built a strong and genuine culture of creativity. We have great foundations in place, ambitious clients and some awesome talent. I’m excited about the potential to take our creative product to a new level with a new creative leader at the wheel,” he says.

Rebelo says that a national and global search for a new ECD is well underway and an announcement about Stapleton’s successor will be made in the near future."
