Paul Everingham has resigned as CEO of Clemenger Group’s Marketforce after eight months in the role.
Everingham was appointed to the role in June last year after John Driscoll announced his resignation as CEO.
His place will be taken by senior Clemenger executive Jim Gall as chairman and acting CEO.
Gall is an experienced leader and entrepreneur, having founded agency Redhanded in Melbourne, which is now part of the Clemenger Group. He has also done extensive consulting to Marketforce over the last six months.
Clemenger Group chairman Robert Morgan said: “I would like to thank Paul Everingham and wish him well for the future.
“We are committed to ensuring the ongoing success of our business in Perth and giving it the full resources of the Clemenger Group in the new era of data-led, new-age digital communications.
“Marketforce will become much closer to the Clemenger BBDO network in the future, at the same time as continuing its proud WA heritage.”
