The challenger mentality in the agency is strong and particularly pertinent to the Australian market. I look forward to nurturing this culture and galvanizing it to the benefit of our Clients businesses.”
Says Roberts: “It’s been a real journey finding the right fit for our agency, and in Scott I know we’ve found the right mix of creative firepower, strong leadership and drive for growth. I’m genuinely looking forward to working alongside him to see our creative product really challenge the Australian market.
