UM Australia CEO Fiona Johnston said intelligence is nothing if not humanly applied.

“It is this mixture of hearts and smarts which is so critical to our clients’ businesses into the future, and these smart new people will bring even deeper levels of scientific and human experience to our unique and diverse UM team,” she said.

“A team already driving great outcomes for our clients as so clearly seen from our strong recent defence and wins of ING Bank and LEGO.

“Both Claudia and Eaon have quite decisive roles to play, and we are looking forward to them joining the business and making our great team even better.”

Commenting on his appointment, Pritchard said: “We have more data and tech available than at any time, and it’s multiplying. Being able to navigate this environment with human understanding and creativity will only become more important.

“UM is perfectly set to lead in the science and art of sophisticated modern communications, and I’m very excited to be joining.”
