After winning a significant amount of new business during 2020, The Monkeys, part of Accenture Interactive, is growing with new hires and promotions.
Melbourne based senior creative team, Joe Sibley (above right) and Hugh Gurney (above left), have been promoted to joint creative directors. Similarly, Connor Beaver (bottom right) has been promoted to creative director with Scott Zuliani (bottom left), his associate creative director.
Says Ant Keogh, CCO, The Monkeys Melbourne: “It’s a wonderful thing to be able to promote four talented and trusted creatives from within the building, people that have been with us pretty much since the inception of the Melbourne office, or in Hugh’s and Scott’s case, before that, in the Sydney office. These guys have always acted as leaders when it came to the work, so it’s nice, as the office grows, to set it in place officially.”
Michelle Canning (left) and Ben Horewood (right), formerly at Cummins&Partners, will join Monkeys Melbourne in the new year.
Says Keogh: “We can’t wait to see this lovely and talented team in the new year. We might even see them in actual real life, if we’re lucky.”
Says Canning and Horewood: “We’re super excited to join the Monkeys, we made a bunch of funny quotes but they didn’t get selected.”
Olivia Nicholson (above), the 2020 Award School national winner, also starts in the new year.
Says Keogh: “When I saw Oli’s Award School work earlier this year it really stood out to me, not just in terms of this year but for a number of years seeing award school books. So I’m thrilled she’s finally made it down to Melbourne.”
