Nick Foley, president, Landor APAC & Japan said one of Landor Australia’s key strategies was to drive greater collaboration and sharing of skills set across both its Sydney and Melbourne campuses. He said Braaksma’s well-deserved promotion was in direct response to fulfilling this strategic direction.
Says Foley: “I am delighted to promote from within, signifying the breadth and strength of talent within the Landor family, and offer such a talented individual a new opportunity. Eeke’s appointment will ensure Landor Melbourne – under the leadership of Jessica Murphy – continues to evolve its offering and supports its strong business growth into 2020 and beyond.”
As part of his remit Braaksma will lead key client accounts for Landor Melbourne including BP, Saputo Dairy Australia and The Royal Agriculture Society of Victoria and more, whilst continuing to have an active consulting role on flagship Sydney clients as required.
Jessica Murphy, Landor Melbourne’s general manager said she was delighted to welcome Eeke to the agency’s leadership team, expanding Landor’s offering for its clients: “Eeke has a proven track record, building strong client partnerships and creating engaging brand experiences. With experience gained from working across the automotive, hospitality, FMCG, financial services and retail sector, Eeke’s appointment puts our team in an excellent position to pursue organic growth and new business opportunities. I am excited about the agency’s future potential.”
