303 MullenLowe’s managing partner of comms and MD of Creature Lee Robson departs

Lee Robson, 303 MullenLowe’s managing partner of communications and the managing director of its PR arm Creature, has departed the agency, Mumbrella can reveal.

Robson joined the agency in November last year as its first managing partner of communications.

Robson has departed the agency as the MD of its PR arm Creature

Before joining 303 MullenLowe, he was the head of publicity at Foxtel for almost two years.

Robson departed the agency six months after 303 MullenLowe launched its PR and content arm, Creature.

At the time of Creature’s launch, Robson was named managing director.

The new PR agency launched with existing clients of parent company 303Mullen Lowe, Harley-Davidson and Royal Lifesaving.

“After a fantastic year with talented folk at 303 MullenLowe coupled with the joy of bringing CREATURE to life, I’m ready to take on the next challenge,” Robson said in a statement to Mumbrella.

Meanwhile, 303 MullenLowe’s director of PR Melissa Grove also quietly left the agency earlier in the year.

Grove was the director of PR for two years and is now a freelance public relations and communications consultant.

When Robson joined the agency, 303 MullenLowe said Melissa Grove would continue as head of the PR division and would be responsible for managing the agency’s PR clients, while Robson would be responsible for integrating the PR capability with the rest of the agency.

Nick Cleaver, CEO at 303 MullenLowe Australia, said in a statement to Mumbrella: “Lee worked with us for just over a year and achieved a good deal. We agreed to part ways as we restructured Creature a few months back. Creature powers on with a growing client base.

Grove has been approached for comment.
