Clemenger BBDO Sydney today announced Ben Coulson (pictured above) as its new chief creative officer.
Coulson joins Clemenger after 10 years at Y&R, most recently as CCO for Australia and New Zealand, and succeeds Paul Nagy, who recently resigned from the agency.
Coulson is currently ranked in the top 10 chief creative officers in the world in the Won Report and has twice been named top five creative directors in the world at Cannes.
Clemenger BBDO Sydney CEO Andy Pontin said: “Ben is an outstanding creative leader with a pedigree that speaks for itself. More importantly, he cares about people and is brilliant at nurturing creative talent and a creative culture. We’re thrilled to have Ben on board.”
Coulson said: “I couldn’t be more excited to be joining what I believe is the world’s best agency network, BBDO. Clemenger and Colenso are the creative heavyweights in our region, and I look forward to furthering that success.
“Clems Sydney is a strong business and has the right foundations to be one of the very best. I can’t wait to roll up my sleeves with the team.”
Coulson will start at Clemenger in early 2017.
