Leo Burnett has announced the promotion of Jason Williams to the newly-created position of chief creative officer for Australia.
The country-level appointment recognises Williams’ more than decade-long contribution to the business and will enable Leo Burnett to further build and leverage its national creative offering.
Melinda Geertz, CEO Leo Burnett Australia, said: “Our two Australian offices are among the best agencies in the world, and together we are a force to be reckoned with. It makes sense for us to fully leverage our connected creative firepower.”
“Jason is a highly respected, talented and innovative creative leader. He has been instrumental to Leo Burnett’s creative and broader business success for more than a decade.”
Williams will continue to lead the Melbourne creative operations as chief creative officer, and he will work with joint Sydney ECDs Grant McAloon and Vince Lagana.
“It’s an honour to take on this role. I’m looking forward to working more closely with Grant and Vince, two of the absolute best in the business. Together, we’ll continue to build our creativity and innovation, and create powerful business platforms for our clients,” said Williams.
