Clems Melbourne’s Stephen De Wolf Quits To Take Role At BBH London

Clemenger Melbourne’s chief creative officer Stephen De Wolf has snared the prize role of chief creative officer at Bartle Bogle Hegarty London (BBH).

De Wolf has been at the Omincom-owned Clems for six years and his start date at the Publicis-owned BBH is as yet unclear.

During his six years at Clems, De Wolf guided the agency to its worldwide position in 2017 as both D&AD Agency of the Year and Cannes Lions Agency of the Year – the first time any Aussie agency has received such an accolade.

Joakim Borgström, worldwide chief creative officer of BBH, said: “Stephen is a talent of the highest caliber and I’ve been jealously following his ideas for years. If I could, I would love to dive into his brain to see what he is cooking, and how he is cooking it. I can’t wait to see what he brings to BBH London.”

Neil Munn, group CEO of BBH, said: “We searched far and wide for a leader with impeccable creative standards, who can also evolve our business. We have found the right person. Stephen brings pedigree, talent and an infectious energy to succeed.”

De Wolf described BBH as “a beacon of creativity” and said that he was enthused over joining with its “creatively charged and passionate leadership team,” poised “to make some of the best work of our lives.”
