Accenture Interactive managing director across Australia and New Zealand Michael Buckley has left the company, B&T can reveal.
Buckley had been with Accenture for nearly six years.
A spokesperson from Accenture told B&T: “We can confirm that Michael Buckley has left Accenture and we wish him the best for his future endeavours.”
B&T reached out to Buckley but did not receive a response at the time of publishing.
Buckley was instrumental in Accenture’s $63 million purchase of creative agency The Monkeys in 2017.
He has over 18 years in the advertising and media industry, previously holding the role of Razorfish CEO from 2005 to 2012, which he also founded, as well as managing partner at Isobar from 2000 to 2005.
Just last month it was reported Accenture Interactive was set to acquire Droga5 overseas, a deal which is understood to be its largest deal to date since it was founded in 2009. The acquisition will see Droga5, which has 500 employees across its offices in New York and London, become part of the consultancy’s marketing and customer experience division.
