Lion and BMF have today announced their long-held relationship has come to an end.

Tanya Marler, marketing director Lion Beer and Cider Australia said: “Based on the needs of a more diversified portfolio, the decision has been made to consolidate Lion’s larger brands between existing creative partners Ogilvy and HOST,while commencing a search for a smaller agency to partner Lion’s craft portfolio.

“We wish the BMF team every success in the future and will always hold our partnership in high regard. ”

BMF managing director, Stephen McArdle added: “We’re very proud of what we’ve achieved with Lion over the years, with work that has defined careers and categories along the way. In more recent times , our view of what makes world-class work has started to differ and the time felt right for us both to move on. We wish Lion every success in the future.”
