With the continued success of Just Global around the world, including in Australia, having recently gained four major new clients, the agency has brought in renowned marketing leader, Felippe Diaz, to support client and agency growth.
Diaz is stepping into the role previously held by James O’Flaherty who is returning to Just Global’s UK office in the position of senior director, strategic solutions where he will lead the company’s new strategic offering.
Based out of the Australia office, Diaz will ensure client success and focus on building strong connections, both within the agency and outside of it. Diaz brings with him an impressive background, joining Just Global from the world’s leading event and experience company, George P. Johnson, as business director, Australia & New Zealand, where he devised and delivered strategically led ideas for the agency’s largest clients.
Says Brandon Friesen, CEO, Just Global: “Felippe’s deep experience will pay dividends for our team and customers first and foremost. His vision and values will help guide the team on our mission to help the world’s most impactful brands thrive.”
His passions lie within the enterprise software and technology sectors, having an impressive twenty-year track record of client relationships and the ability to grow business year-on-year working across integrated channels and campaigns of every facet. This was proven in 2019 when Diaz was named Campaign Asia’s “Account Person of the Year in Australia and New Zealand” for his passion for connecting brands with their audiences in meaningful ways, and constantly challenging his clients to be brave, take calculated risks and try new things to grow their business.
Says Diaz on joining the B2B marketing agency: “The opportunity to join Just Global was not only one which would allow me to continue to work with some amazing brands in the tech space, but provides me with the amazing chance to lead and grow a local agency with a great team doing some fantastic work.” He continues, “I’m really looking forward to raising the profile of Just Global in Australia and partnering with our clients to help them succeed.”
The agency and clients will benefit from his inspired leadership, management excellence, outstanding business performance, and overall brilliance across the Asia-Pacific advertising and communications industry, in conjunction with teams in other regions from North America to EMEA.
