VCCP, The Challenger Agency for Challenger Brands, has promoted Senior Planner Josh Manning to the role of Planning Director.
In his new role, Manning will continue to work across key client accounts including Compare the Market, Torrens University Australia and LDV, as well as driving new business growth. Prior to VCCP, Manning worked at Marcel Sydney where he worked across award winning work for Tiger Beer and Tinder, as well as leading strategy on Rio Tinto.
He has also spent time at TKT Sydney, where he worked across the Campbell Arnotts portfolio and V Energy, and Clemenger BBDO Sydney, where he contributed on the Tourism Australia and Bacardi Martini accounts.
He joined VCCP in August 2019. Says Kim Feitelberg, VCCP Sydney Executive Planning Director “It’s been great having Josh on board and to see how quickly he’s embraced the VCCP challenger ethos. He’s such a student of strategy, of human behaviour and of culture, and that has been really evident in the way he has contributed to both existing clients and new business.
Manning added, “I feel genuinely lucky to have landed at VCCP. Across the whole network there is a very strong, smart planning culture and a lot of great minds to tap into. Here in Sydney, there’s a smart bunch of people who are working hard to replicate the kind of success the agency has had overseas, and I’m looking forward to contributing to that and continuing to help the agency grow.”
The last 8 months have seen VCCP Sydney launch ‘Donate Your Kit’, its first campaign for Cadbury New Zealand, as well as win LDV Automotive, a part of the Ateco Group
