He joins the agency from BWM Isobar, where he was managing director in Sydney, presiding over a period of prolific business growth and local and global creative recognition.
Kerby: “Clemenger BBDO had been at the pinnacle of commercial creativity for as long as I can remember, so it’s no exaggeration to say that joining the team is a dream come true.
"With the skills in the Sydney team and the capability in the Clemenger Group, I see opportunity everywhere; for clients, for talent, and to create iconic work that proves that creativity is always the answer, today and tomorrow.”
Clemenger Group CEO Les Timar: “Brent is a new age leader who brings a strong commitment to creativity, matched with deep experience in data-led and technology-enabled campaigns.”
“He is highly respected and admired by both his colleagues and clients. His leadership and unique creative skills will drive new and innovative integrated solutions for our partners.”
“His commitment to DE&I also stands out, having developed initiatives both internally and with client organisations, including driving Australia’s first Indigenous Reconciliation Action Plan for a creative agency. I am confident he will foster a modern, agile and inclusive workplace.”
He joins Clemenger BBDO Sydney’s leadership team, comprising Darren Wright, Brendan Willenberg, Lilian Sor, Jade Clark, Claire Bissett, Graham Sweet and Lewis Steele.
He starts in February.
