Creative communications agency Connecting Plots has kicked off 2021 by welcoming two new senior hires following a period of significant growth.

Chris Johnson has been appointed to the role of creative director, while Gemma Geraint joins the agency as group account director (both pictured above).

Johnson joins from TBWA\Sydney, and brings more than 20 years of experience working in Australia’s leading creative agencies. Throughout his career, he has worked across a wide range of brands and categories, and has won more than 70 awards, including at D&AD, Cannes, One Show, Clio, AWARD, The Webby’s and Spikes Asia.

He will be working across a variety of Connecting Plots’ clients, including Nestlé, Menulog, Fantastic Furniture and Casella Family Brands.

On his newly appointed role, Johnson said: “The team at Connecting Plots has built an exceptional business from a love and passion for what they do.

“With the combined power and resources of Infinity Squared and Connecting Plots, everything is firmly in place to make great work, faster and smarter. I’m incredibly excited to join the team and look forward to the challenge of working with such a fast-growing agency.”

Connecting Plots has also added Gemma Geraint as its newest group account director. Geraint brings more than 15 years of experience working in both digital and creative agencies. Most recently, she led the creative content and studio team at Qantas.

Prior to that, she worked for Sputnik Agency (subsequently acquired by BWM Dentsu) where she was responsible for redeveloping Westpac’s online banking platform and leading the digital account for Sanitarium.

“I’m excited to be joining an agency that really does things differently and bucks the traditional agency process,” Geraint said. “I’m looking forward to working with such a passionate team, as well as some of Australia’s leading brands.”

Commenting on the agency’s two senior appointments, Connecting Plots managing director Tom Phillips said: “With the added skills and talent of Chris and Gemma, Connecting Plots is continuing to cement itself as a creative communications agency who builds brands and businesses through hand-in-glove creative and media solutions.

“We cannot wait to watch the agency continue to grow under their leadership.”

It comes as Connecting Plots promotes Gwen Jimenez to senior project lead and Jack Blades to business director.

The new appointments and promotions follow several account wins for Connecting Plots, including Menulog, Peter Lehmann Wines and Lebara Mobile Australia.
