SYDNEY, Tuesday: Clemenger Group Australia has appointed Dani Bassil to the role of ceo of Clemenger BBDO Australia, bringing its Melbourne and Sydney agencies together across its two locations.
Bassil’s appointment follows Jim Gall’s decision to resign as ceo of Clemenger BBDO Melbourne Group, after more than a decade with Clemenger Group AU.
Gall worked in Aotearoa for two years – as ceo of Clemenger BBDO NZ in 2019-2022.
Bassil, an Australian, will return after 20 years in the United Kingdom, most recently as ceo of Digitas UK.
“Gall worked in Aotearoa as ceo of Clemenger BBDO NZ in 2019-2022.”
She started her career at Ogilvy Sydney in 1999 before heading to the UK in 2003, working at various top agencies over the years including Mother, Wieden+Kennedy, VCCP, Grey and J Walter Thompson before joining Digitas UK in 2017.
“It is wonderful to be coming home to lead one of the world’s most respected agencies as it heads into a new era,” she told Aussie trade media.
Gall joined Clemenger Group in 2013, when the company he founded, Redhanded, was acquired by the Group. He has held various ceo, board and chair positions within the group and its operating companies.
