Clemenger Group has announced that Clemenger DDBO Melbourne CEO Nick Garrett will also take on the role of CEO for its sister agency in Sydney.
Garrett’s expanded remit follows the announcement in September that Andy Pontin (pictured above) will be stepping down as CEO of Clemenger BBDO Sydney in early 2018.
Robert Morgan, executive chairman of the Clemenger Group, said Garrett has demonstrated great leadership during his time at both Colenso BBDO Auckland and Clemenger BBDO Melbourne.
“He gets the needs of the new age of advertising – he’s a hunter, is loved by his clients and is a magnet for talent,” Morgan said.
“He is a passionate believer in the importance of creativity as our key differentiation. He also makes the complex clear in respect of being a successful marketer in the digital age.
“We believe that enhanced inter-agency cooperation and the ability to widen our skills base, while minimising duplication, will enable us to continue to lead in the new era.”
Nick will assume his new role in January 2018 while Pontin will continue to work with Clems Sydney during the handover until at least the end of February 2018.
