Clems Sydney CEO Andy Pontin Quits

After nine years at the helm of Clemenger BBDO Sydney, Andy Pontin has decided to step down as CEO over the next six months.

However, he will continue with the agency well into 2018 to ensure a seamless transition to his replacement.

Robert Morgan, executive chairman of the Clemenger Group, said: “Andy and I have been in discussion for some time and he has been clear that he wanted to step back at the end of the year.

“I would like to thank Andy for his magnificent efforts leading Clemenger BBDO Sydney over this time. We have had great success under his leadership.

“We will take our time to plan his replacement as he has agreed to continue to work at the agency until June 2018.

Pontin joined Clemenger in 2005, initially running the group’s direct and digital businesses before taking over the reins at Clemenger BBDO Sydney. He has been a director of the Clemenger Group since 2009.

At the same time, Ben Coulson (chief creative officer), Emily Perrett (managing director) and John Rizoski (chief financial officer) will continue to lead Clemenger BBDO Sydney.
