Simon Thomas Joins Goodoil as Melbourne EP

Simon Thomas has joined Goodoil as executive producer and will launch its Melbourne office.

He has had an illustrious career across the last 15 years in various agencies, including DDB, Grey, GPY&R and AJF Partnership, where he started their production department. Most recently, Thomas was head of onscreen at DDB Melbourne and leaves a six-year legacy with the agency.

Says Thomas: "I'm honoured and extremely excited to be able to work with such a talented group of directors and the whole team at Goodoil. They're a company that truly puts creativity first. Along with Matt, Sam and Juliet, I look forward to bringing our offering to the market and using my agency experience to broaden our connections and capabilities in Melbourne."

Goodoil has worked across Australia and New Zealand for over 15 years with strong ties to Melbourne agencies. Some of its most recognisable and recent work includes its collaboration on the Honda campaigns with Leo Burnett Melbourne.

Says Sam Long, EP, Goodoil: "It was always our plan to open up shop in Melbourne so we can better service our clients there. It was just a matter of finding the right person. When we met with Simo we knew the time was right to make our Melbourne presence official. Our director roster is the strongest it's ever been and there are few people with Simo's level of experience and eye for creativity that could take the EP role and make it their own. We're looking forward to working with him to take Goodoil to the next level."
