Clemenger BBDO Melbourne has announced the promotion of Billy Jones to group business director.
In his new role, Jones will be responsible for the Mars Wrigley Confectionary portfolio, leading work for brands including M&M’S, Maltesers, Extra Gum, Eclipse Mints, Mars Bar, Snickers and more.
Prior to joining Clemenger BBDO Melbourne last year, Jones spent a number of years in the BBDO Network at BBDO San Francisco and Energy BBDO, in addition to a stint at Laughlin Constable in Chicago.
Says Simon Lamplough, managing director, Clemenger BBDO Melbourne: “Since joining the agency as a business director, Billy has really impressed with his passion for creativity. Clients love him, his team loves him and he’s helped build an exciting pipeline of work for Mars that we are looking forward to bringing to market.”
Says Jones: “Being in the BBDO network for some time now, I started realizing that most of the work that made me jealous was coming out of Clemenger BBDO Melbourne. A couple of years ago I had a goal to get to this office, and to see if I had what it takes to cut it at one of the best agencies in the world. To be able to get here and then to get acknowledged here has been incredibly gratifying, and I can’t wait for the next set of challenges along the way.”
