A global creative professional, Ben’s career has spanned roles in North America, UK, Europe, Asia, New Zealand and Australia. Ranking among Australia’s most awarded creative leaders of the past decade, Ben has been recognised as one of the top five ECDs in the world at the Cannes Lions and in the Top 10 CCOs in the world on The Won Report.
Ben was most recently CCO at Clemenger BBDO Sydney, which enjoyed its most successful period in history for both creativity and effectiveness during his time there. Before that, he spent six years as regional CCO for Y&R Australia and New Zealand, seeing the agency named the most awarded ANZ network at Cannes and Spikes for three years running.
A passionate advocate for creative effectiveness, Ben believes in logical magic – meaning that brilliant and effective ideas come from deploying both sides of the brain. Although which side goes first is still a mystery.
