Clemenger Group New Zealand chief executive officer, Jim Gall, is returning to home to take up the position of chief executive officer of Clemenger BBDO Melbourne Group. He will also remain chairman of Clemenger Group New Zealand.
As chief executive officer, Gall will take on responsibility for Clemenger BBDO Melbourne Group’s advertising, digital consulting, web development, e-Commerce, mar-tech, production and activation units, bringing together the agency’s capabilities under one roof. He will also remain chairman of Clemenger Group New Zealand.
Gall’s appointment follows Gayle While’s decision to return home to the UK after four years with Clemenger BBDO Melbourne, most recently as chief executive officer.
Gall became part of Clemenger BBDO group in 2013, when the agency he founded, Redhanded Communications, was acquired by the Group.
Robert Morgan, executive chairman, Clemenger Group, stated, “Jim Gall is a brilliant agency leader. He’s passionate about creativity and most importantly, he cares about his clients’ business. Jim has demonstrated his capability in the orchestration and enablement of new age creativity by harnessing best-in-class assets in ad-tech, mar-tech, data and e-commerce, and understands how to apply the power of creativity to drive brilliant outcomes for clients. We’re thrilled to have him take the reins of Clemenger BBDO Melbourne Group.
“While we’re sad to be saying goodbye to Gayle, I want to thank her for the brilliant contribution she made to the agency during her time with us. We wish Gayle every success and happiness in her future endeavours.”
Gall commented, “It’s fantastic to be returning home and joining the team in Melbourne. We have unrivalled capability both creatively and across our specialist services, and we’ll pair those capabilities with our unwavering belief that creativity is always the answer to continue to serve the ever-evolving needs of our clients.”
