Saatchi & Saatchi Melbourne has announced Rebecca Robertson as new client service director, joining the Melbourne leadership team of Mark Cochrane (managing director), Alex Speakman (managing partner / director of strategy) and Leon Wilson (group creative director).
Having started her career at DDB Melbourne, Robertson moved to London to work both on the agency and the client side under major brand names including Glenfiddich, O2, Tesco, Callaway, RBS & NatWest.
Robertson first joined the Saatchi & Saatchi family when she moved to New York, leading the General Mills Yoplait business for North America, and more recently the JP Morgan Chase Consumer Bank global account.
“We are so pleased to have Rebecca leading our growing client portfolio in Melbourne,” Cochrane said.
“We have gone from a start up to a full service collective of thirty-two in little over a year, and with her progressive experience, passion and leadership it is incredibly exciting to have Rebecca on board for our next chapter.”
Robertson said, “I feel as though I’m back home with Saatchi & Saatchi, and I’m so ready to help fuel the agency’s journey. We already have such a great fit as a team and it’s exciting to see what we can achieve together a group.”
