Leo Burnett has announced the promotion of Jason Williams to the newly-created position of chief creative officer for Australia.
The country-level appointment recognises Williams’ more than decade-long contribution to the business and will enable Leo Burnett to further build and leverage its national creative offering.
Melinda Geertz, CEO Leo Burnett Australia, said: “Our two Australian offices are among the best agencies in the world, and together we are a force to be reckoned with. It makes sense for us to fully leverage our connected creative firepower.”
“Jason is a highly respected, talented and innovative creative leader. He has been instrumental to Leo Burnett’s creative and broader business success for more than a decade.”
Williams will continue to lead the Melbourne creative operations as chief creative officer, and he will work with joint Sydney ECDs Grant McAloon and Vince Lagana.
