Ex-Wieden + Kennedy leader Nick Campion has relocated to Australia to join Clemenger BBDO Melbourne as a group account director. During his time at W+K, Campion ran the EA Sports FIFA, Need for Speed, Audi and S7 Airlines accounts.

The first task was to bring in the right specialist leaders across new capabilities and we are well underway, however you need world-class generalists to lead the integrated business teams and they are not easy to find.

Nick Campion added, “I’ve spent my career looking to create the best possible work with the most impressive and inspiring people and Clemenger BBDO Melbourne feels like the perfect place to continue that adventure. The quality of their creative output already speaks for itself and I’m very excited to be part of the team driving the agency onwards and upwards”.
