BMF creative founder Warren Brown is set to leave the agency he co-founded in July 1996.
Commenting on his departure, Brown said “It has been a privilege and a joy to see so many brilliant careers helped along by BMF over the past 20 years. My vision was for BMF to be a world-class agency that happens to be based in Sydney and I’d like to think we achieved that.
“I wish everyone at BMF continued success and happiness and without doubt, BMF will be something I’ll always be enormously proud of.”
Warren began his career in 1981 and has worked for a number of leading creative agencies, both in the UK and Australia. He co-founded BMF in 1996 and is highly regarded in the industry as the creative force behind some of Australia’s most iconic advertising.
His first TV campaign won two D&AD Silvers and British Television’s Commercial of the Year. His awards include 19 Cannes Lions, including three Golds and seven D&AD Silvers spread across TV, Print, Posters, Direct, Promo and Integrated categories.
At Cannes he’s been a juror for Titanium and TV and jury President for Promo and Activation. At D&AD he’s been a juror for TV, Press and Poster and chaired Radio. At Clio he’s been a juror for TV and Print and chaired Radio. He’s also chaired every Australian award show.
In 2009, BMF was also awarded B&T’s Australian Agency of the Decade.
