McCann Hong Kong MD, Vince Viola, is returning to Australia to fill the role of chief growth officer.
This is the second key appointment for McCann in the past few months, having nabbed Wunderman’s Brent Clarke in December last year.
“2013 was a strong new business year for McCANN, winning key new clients like Google, Bendigo Bank, Lion and government projects,” Ben Lilley, McCANN Worldgroup chairman and CEO, said.
“Our growth over the past 12 months has allowed us to create not just some brilliant work, but also some brilliant new roles in our national operation.
“We’re continuing to look out for more top talent who want to become part of McCANN’s reinvention. It’s an exciting time to be at the agency.”
Viola returns to Australia after over ten years in Hong Kong managing the Cathay Pacific team.
