After 9 Years At The Helm Clemenger BBDO, Sydney CEO Andy Pontin To Step Down From Role

After 9 years at the helm of Clemenger BBDO Sydney, Andy Pontin has decided to step down as CEO of Clemenger BBDO Sydney over the next 6 months.

Says Robert Morgan, executive chairman of the Clemenger Group: "Andy and I have been in discussion for some time and he has been clear that he wanted to step back at the end of the year. I would like to thank Andy for his magnificent efforts leading Clemenger BBDO Sydney over this time. We have had great success under his leadership. Fortunately for us, he has agreed to stay with the agency until June 2018."

Pontin joined Clemenger in 2005, initially running the group's direct and digital businesses before taking over the reins at Clemenger BBDO Sydney. He has been a director of the Clemenger Group since 2009.

Says Morgan: "We will take our time to plan his replacement as he has agreed to continue to work at the agency until June 2018."

At the same time, Ben Coulson as chief creative officer, Emily Perrett as managing director and John Rizoski as chief financial officer will continue to lead Clemenger BBDO Sydney.
