Clemenger BBDO Melbourne is proud to announce the promotion of Evan Roberts (right in photo) and Stephen de Wolf (left) to Executive Creative Directors.

Currently the world’s two most awarded creative leaders, Evan and Stephen’s appointment will see them take leadership of the agency’s stellar creative department alongside Creative Chairman, James McGrath.

Having led by example during their time at Clemenger BBDO Melbourne, the pair’s leadership of a number of the agency’s most important clients and the nurturing of the internationally acclaimed creative department, the decision was an easy one.

Clemenger BBDO Melbourne Creative Chairman, James McGrath, said: ‘It’s one extraordinary thing to be a world class creative, and quite another to be a brilliant leader. In Evan and Steve, we miraculously have both. I feel so fortunate to have them and our creative leaders at large, working on, leading and then making the most of the opportunities our client’s greatest problems present.”

Evan and Stephen’s time at Clemenger BBDO Melbourne has been somewhat of a homecoming, with both having worked at the agency early on in their careers prior to making their returns.

Evan began his career with the agency in 2002, prior to spending several years abroad. Before re-joining Clemenger BBDO Melbourne, he enjoyed a six-year stint at GPY&R Melbourne which saw him rise to the role of Creative Director off the back of internationally awarded work.

Stephen’s rise through the ranks begin in Perth prior to his first stint at Clemenger BBDO Melbourne 15 years ago. During that time, Stephen worked in some of Australia and New Zealand’s largest agencies including JWT Sydney, Saatchi & Saatchi New Zealand as well as three and a half years in London as Partner and Creative Director at 18 Feet & Rising.

Over the last three years, Evan and Stephen have created some of Clemenger’s highest profile campaigns for MARS, the Transport Accident Commission, Airbnb and Australia’s largest department store, Myer.

“Working at Clemenger is like nowhere else. This place is brimming with both talent and opportunities,” said Stephen.

“To be part of the team leading the charge is exciting, terrifying and a bunch of other feelings that we can’t articulate right now,” added Evan.

Clemenger BBDO Melbourne CEO, Nick Garrett, was incredibly proud of both Evan and Stephen, adding:“The impact of both the lads is unquestionable. Looking beyond the work, the cultural significance they have in the agency is huge and they are great leaders. They have creativity and passion in equal measure, but they are wonderful people and we are very proud to have been able to promote from within.”
