72andSunny Sydney Promotes Ross Berthinussen To President Following Chris Kay’s Shock Exit

72andSunny Sydney has appointed Ross Berthinussen (main photo) to the role of president leading the Sydney office.

Berthinussen’s promotion follows yesterday’s surprise news that the agency’s CEO, Chris Kay, had snared the rather prestigious role of CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi’s UK office. Read B&T’s reporting here.

Berthinussen has been executive strategy director of the office for the last three years and as president, Berthinussen will continue to partner with Luke Martin, head of product in guiding the agency’s vision and growth.

With almost 20 years’ experience in world leading creative companies, including Grey London and almost a decade at BBH London, Berthinussen moved to Australia seven years ago as head of strategy at M&C Saatchi Sydney, and joined 72andSunny as executive strategy director in 2018.

Berthinussen will continue to help lead 72andSunny’s presence in the region alongside Luke, Ida Siow, President of 72andSunny Singapore and Johnny Tan, APAC executive creative director.

“It’s been a privilege helping to build such an awesome team, culture and client partner base. We feel we’re just getting started in shaping what a modern creative company and 72andSunny can be in this part of the world,” said Berthinussen.

Evin Shutt, 72andSunny Global CEO commented: “Ross is a proven leader – helping build 72andSunny Sydney for the last few years and partnering with all of our clients for incredible impact.”

“We’re excited for his strategic impact to move to the next level as President and can’t wait to see where Ross and Luke take us next,” Shutt said.

The agency’s leadership team also includes Tara Jaijee, head of growth, Whitney Hawthorn, head of production, and David Williams, head of finance.
