After what it says was “an extensive search”, Wunderman Thompson (WT) has promoted Nick Muncaster to managing director of its Melbourne operations.
Announcing the promotion, WT said Muncaster will lead the brand’s vision for the Melbourne office, “continuing to build a high performing culture for talent and drive strategic growth for clients”.
Muncaster (pictured, left) said: “I am excited by the opportunity and humbled by the support from our talented team and ambitious clients.
“Most of all, I’m looking forward to my next chapter within this dynamic industry and business.”
Muncaster added he was proud of “our continued momentum” and said he looks forward to continuing to inspire growth “across our client’s business in 2021”.
WT ANZ chief executive Lee Leggett (pictured, right) added: “We met with many talented and ambitious people in our search, all with a wide range of different experiences and qualifications.
“The final decision to appoint internally is a real testament to Nick’s strong leadership of our Melbourne team and clients for the past six years, and the amazing job he has done so far.
“For anyone who has worked alongside Nick, you will know for yourself how talented he is. Our Melbourne office is in great hands.”
Muncaster initially began at WT six years ago as general manager, which led to his previous appointment as partner.
Muncaster’s category experience includes brands within the retail, telco, FMCG, IT, automotive, finance and insurance sectors, as well as extensive partnerships with state and federal governments.
Prior to his appointment at WT, he held multiple leadership roles at agencies, including Ogilvy and EuroRSCG (Havas) in Sydney and Melbourne.
