JASON WILLIAMS - CCO LEO BURNETT AUSTRALIA (1).jpgLeo Burnett has announced the promotion of Leo Burnett Melbourne executive creative director Jason Williams to the newly created position of chief creative officer, Leo Burnett Australia.

The country-level appointment recognises Williams' more than decade-long contribution to the business and will enable Leo Burnett to further build and leverage its national creative offering.

Says Melinda Geertz, CEO, Leo Burnett Australia: "Our two Australian offices are among the best agencies in the world, and together we are a force to be reckoned with. It makes sense for us to fully leverage our connected creative firepower.

"Jason is a highly respected, talented and innovative creative leader. He has been instrumental to Leo Burnett's creative and broader business success for more than a decade."

Williams will continue to lead the Melbourne creative operations as chief creative officer, and he will work with joint Sydney ECDs Grant McAloon and Vince Lagana.

Says Williams: "It's an honour to take on this role. I'm looking forward to working more closely with Grant and Vince, two of the absolute best in the business. Together, we'll continue to build our creativity and innovation, and create powerful business platforms for our clients."

10 years says he's no fly-by-nighter and can ride the good with the bad.
And Leo's Melbourne work is rarely far from good. So, congratulations.

You don't know Jason Williams?

Like, personally or haven't heard of him?

Because if it's the latter, shame on you.

And if it's the former, why comment?

And if you don't know him, how do you know it's deserved (although it is).

I think you might be a dummkopf.

Well done to Jason.
