SYDNEY, Tuesday: WPP AUNZ’s VMLY&R has promoted Sydney-based ceo Jon Bird to executive chairman of the agency in NZ & Australia. Bird has been replaced by Isobar Australia MD Thomas Tearle (he’ll also be based in Sydney).

Bird has only been ceo of the “AUNZ” agency for 20 months, returning to Australia from VMLY&R New York to take up the role following the departures of co-ceos Pete Bosilkovski and Aden Hepburn.

WPP AUNZ interim ceo John Steedman (yet another Aussie) said: “The team is excited about Bird’s imminent arrival back to Australia [sic].”
