Flanagan joins the team as group account director. Flanagan has had strong experience both agency and client side with recent appointments including Sony, Paramount and GAD at BMF where he led the development of award winning work for Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) and Dairy Farmers.
“David has built a reputation in the market as being both commercially focused and creatively minded. On top of that he’s one of the most liked and affable people in advertising,” said Chris Jeffares, Cummins&Partners CEO.
Flanagan said of the appointment: “Cummins&Partners represents exactly the place I want to work. They are taking a responsible attitude to creativity, and working successfully with some of Australia’s best and biggest brands. They are a ripping bunch of people and I look forward to building the business in Sydney.”
