The promotion, announced today, comes on the back of a continued run of new business wins over the past 12 months for the Surry Hills agency; including HiPages, Laureate International Universities, Fruits & Roots, Luxottica, Brabham Automotive and Cancer Council Australia.

Bush-Ellis began her career at Ogilvy in Cape Town, before moving to CHI & Partners in the UK where she led the re-positioning of British Gas and Talk Talk's highly successful X Factor campaign. She joined VCCP in 2016.

VCCP Sydney CEO Andrew Holt says the new role is well-deserved and an important step in the agency's evolution.
Says Holt: "As a challenger agency, we want to help our clients transform their fortunes by disrupting their categories and Kim lives and breathes this challenger spirit; she is loved by her clients, collaborative with our partners and tenacious with our work."

The new client service director role will see Bush-Ellis work alongside VCCP's management team as the agency deploys new capabilities and expands its team.

Adds Holt: "Kim epitomizes our culture and that's so important to us. We are lucky to have her and excited to unleash her talents across the wider agency."

Says Bush-Ellis: "I'm incredibly excited about the opportunity to take on a more prominent role in the agency as we grow from a start-up to an up-start agency. I'm passionate about nurturing our culture, and will be focussing on our development and expansion to make sure it's not only one of the best places to work, but one of the best agencies to work with."
