Wilkins, who established the media planning agency  with John Harlow and Will Collin in 2000, said in a statement that after 13 and a half years at Naked "it feels like the right time to move on and explore new horizons".

Adam Ferrier, who recently left the Australian arm of Naked, told B&T the Wilkins was “the smartest, most inspiring chap I've ever worked with”, adding that he also loved Wilkins “erudite stories about the hazards of wearing white jeans, and other such issues the modern man has to deal with”. 

Following his decision to call it a day at Naked Wilkins said that he’d put his “heart and soul” into the agency and leaves with many amazing memories.

“The best part has been the chance to work with some of the most brilliant, creative and inspiring people in the industry,” he said.

Matthew Melhuish, CEO of Enero Group, commented: “Jon is a unique figure in the industry; a creative thinker, straight talker and a genuinely nice guy. Loved by clients and staff from Sydney to London – Jon is leaving Naked but his unique way of looking at problems and desire to challenge the status quo lives on in Naked’s DNA.”
