Dean Hunt_JWT Perth.jpg303 MullenLowe has appointed Dean Hunt as Creative Lead. It will be Hunt's second crack in Perth, having briefly been appointed as J Walter Thompson Perth's creative director earlier this year but departing soon after.

Hunt brings with him nearly 20 years experience at Mojo, Campaign Palace, TBWA, BMF and VCCP. Prior to joining J. Walter Thompson in January this year, he was the founding Creative Director of VCCP Sydney, introducing comparethemarket.com.au to Australia, before going on to win accounts such as ING Direct, Appliances Online and Fitness First.

He joins 303 MullenLowe in early 2017.
"In Dean, we are continuing to invest in ground-breaking creative," said Richard Berney, Executive Creative Director of 303 MullenLowe Perth. "He is an incredibly important hire - so good, he makes me nervous. These butterflies have always been my harbinger of great creative, so I couldn't be more excited about 2017."

"303 MullenLowe felt like a great tonal fit for me - there's an energy I couldn't resist," said Hunt. "I'm looking forward to having some fun, working with old and new friends, and continuing to build on the momentum garnered at this well-poised agency. Exciting times ahead,"

"Dean and Jess add firepower to our creative department, bringing worldliness, talent and above all enthusiasm into our four walls. This has always been our way, but you never get tired of welcoming people who really embody the 303 spirit," said Berney.

Witt also starts her new role in January 2017.
