Leo Burnett Melbourne promotes senior creative Andrew Woodhead to creative director role

ANDREW WOODHEAD HEADSHOT.jpgCB Exclusive: Leo Burnett Melbourne has promoted Andrew Woodhead (left), to the role of creative director. In his eight years at the agency he has steadily risen through the ranks from the initial position of mid-weight writer.

Says Jason Williams, ECD: "We've had great momentum over the last few years and Andrew has been an important part of that. It gives us great pleasure to see Andrew take on the role of creative director and there's nothing more satisfying than to be able to promote from within. Andrew has genuinely earned this title and will continue to go from strength to strength."

Woodhead has proven creative credentials having been recognised at every international awards show and receiving more than 200 accolades. Most notably the prestigious Cannes Grand Prix for Good in 2011 and the inaugural Clio Facebook Award in 2012.

Says Woodhead: "I'm extremely excited to take on my new position at Leo Burnett and to continue the success we've had over the last eight years."

I remember when you were part-timing it at McCarthy Moon many moons ago. You have carved out for yourself one of the more consistent and successful careers in the Melbourne creative community (without becoming a self-promoting wanker in the process). Well done. Well deserved.

Any Award School student lucky enough to be in one of Andrew's tute groups knows what an inspiring mentor he is. The Creative Department at Leo's is lucky to have a guy like him as CD. Congrats mate.

Why on earth would you want to become a CD anymore??

Say goodbye to your free thinking, creativity and personal life.
Say hello to politics, pointless meetings and corporate bullshit.

And I'd be very surprised if they gave you a raise that compensates.
