Creative agency Clemenger Brisbane has been very busy hiring this year, with new appointments across operations, strategy and creative, plus a promotion or two.
Ruth Lynskey has joined Clems as operations director, having worked in digital and creative agencies across Australia and New Zealand for the past 13 years, including running her own digital shop.
Lynskey’s first appointment was the hire of new offsider Kim Tracey in the role of operations coordinator.
In the creative department, Christie Luxton has stepped up to the role of associate creative director, with the backing of creative directors Marianne O’Brien and Cristian Staal.
Luxton has been with the agency for over three years and is already leading the way on key accounts including Weis and the Department of Transport and Main Roads.
There’s also the new/old hire of Amee Wilson, who previously worked in Clems’ Brisbane studio, and has now joined as art director. Wilson has teamed up with her writer Shaun Conroy.
Finally, Alex Forrester is the new planner working under the guidance of recently promoted strategy director Erin Core. Forrester has made the move from a career in law to now make the case for smarter work in advertising.
