Clemenger Group has announced Brent Kerby as the new CEO of Clemenger BBDO Sydney. It follows Pete Bosilkovski’s departure from the role back in October.

Clemenger Group CEO Les Timar said: “Brent is a new age leader who brings a strong commitment to creativity, matched with deep experience in data-led and technology-enabled campaigns.”

With the skills in the Sydney team and the capability in the Clemenger Group, I see opportunity everywhere; for clients, for talent, and to create iconic work that proves that creativity is always the answer, today and tomorrow.”
