After just over two years with the agency Pete Bosilkovski has resigned as CEO of Clemenger BBDO Sydney and will leave his role at the end of October.
Bosilkovski has made a significant contribution to Clemenger BBDO Sydney since joining the agency in 2019 and has led passionately, tenaciously and effectively during his period at the helm.
Prior to Clemenger BBDO Sydney, Bosilkovski held the role of regional CEO, Australia & NZ for VMLY&R and prior to that he was CEO of Leo Burnett Sydney, where he worked for nine years.
He has now decided to take a break and spend more time with his family as he seeks to explore a different opportunity in his career.
Says Robert Morgan, chairman and CEO, Clemenger Group: “We are obviously disappointed that Pete will step down from this role, but we wish him well in the next phase of his career and thank him for his contribution to the agency.
“He has curated an energetic, talented and fearless team at Clemenger BBDO Sydney, who have pushed the boat on all fronts and created some ground-breaking and innovative work together in the past two years. He is leaving the agency in a strong position to continue to thrive.
“We have a terrific leadership team at Clemenger BBDO Sydney – Darren Wright, Brendan Willenberg, Jade Clark, Claire Bissett, Lilian Sor, Graham Sweet, Lewis Steele and Adrian Ciabotti – who will continue to lead the agency forward.”
Says Bosilkovski: “Leading a company throughout the pandemic has been extremely rewarding and challenging in my career as a leader. I have learnt a lot about myself as a professional, a husband and as a dad. This period has certainly made me reflect on all aspects of my life, and I will take some time out to explore a different path and opportunity.
“I want to thank Robert Morgan, the Clemenger BBDO Sydney management team, and everyone across the agency for their exceptional creative work and support. I would also like to thank our client partners who have supported me on this amazing journey.
“We’ve injected an incredible sense of energy into the company – an energy for thinking differently, and an energy to grow and win new business. This is the direct result of the talent we’ve nurtured, who all share a strong passion for innovative creativity.”
An announcement for Bosilkovski’s replacement will be made in due course. In the interim, Clemenger BBDO Sydney’s leadership team will report directly to Robert Morgan.
This change will be effective from Monday 1 November.
