McCann Sydney has appointed Darren Spiller as chief creative officer and Hazelle Klønhammer (featured image) as managing director.

Spiller, former Host, DDB Melbourne, and Fallon USA, is a multi-award winning creative leader with awards covering everything from Cannes Lions to D&AD pencils.

He also featured in Adweek’s Top 100 Creatives for 2018.

Spiller commented: “There’s nothing more exciting than people like Nic, Fran and Hazelle asking you to come on board and help build and re-invent something.

“I knew I was going to be in good company with innovative impatient thinkers.

“All here, all like-minded to make relevant effective work.”

With over a decade at Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam, former founding partner and CEO of Anomaly Amsterdam and most recently co-founder of Australian ideas agency Ugly, Klønhammer has grown and re-positioned some of the world’s most notable global brands, including Nike, Converse, Diageo, Microsoft, Heineken, Carlsberg, Electronic Arts, Google and Vodafone.

Klønhammer said: “McCann Sydney is at an interesting crossroads, evolving their agency model to be more progressive and with a huge focus on creativity – not just from the creative ‘department’ but across every aspect of the business.

“I am delighted to be on this journey with them.”

CEO of McCann Australia, Nicole Taylor said: “Daz and Hazelle are world class practitioners who feel like family.

“We are aligned on our goals and values and have great respect and appreciation for each other. It’s a privilege to have them join us.”

McCann Sydney also announces the departure of executive creative director, Jerker Fagerstrom, who has made the decision to return home to Sweden.

On Jerker’s departure Taylor said: “While we are incredibly sad to see Jerker go, we respect his decision to do what is right for his family.

“We hope to keep Jerker within the IPG network, and are currently looking for suitable roles overseas.”
