Connecting Plots hires Alexa Burchell and Bonnie Ledsam

Connecting Plots has made two senior hires in art director Alexa Burchell and senior integrated producer and studio manager Bonnie Ledsam.

Burchell joins from Isobar where she was creative designer. She started out at the agency as graphic designer for With Collective, prior to its merger with Isobar at the end of 2019.

In her new role, Burchell will be working closely with creative director Chris Johnson, who was hired last month.

“I had heard about Connecting Plots and its amazing leaders Dave Jansen and Tom Phillips. I also knew how rapidly the agency was growing and its exceptional capabilities and resources,” Burchell said.

“I’m very excited to join such a forward-thinking, innovative agency and I can’t wait to get stuck-in with Chris and his team and make some career-defining work.”

Ledsam was most recently at Qantas as creative operations manager. Her career spans Leo Burnett and BWM Dentsu where she worked on clients NBN, Ferrero, Maserati and Qantas.

Ledsam said: “I’m thrilled to be joining Connecting Plots and its sister production company Infinity Squared. The studio and production teams here are an incredibly talented bunch and always one step ahead when it comes to the last tech innovation and emerging channels.

“The work they produce is consistently impressive, progressive and worthy of being talked about. I’m excited to be part of an incredible team producing such incredible work.”

Phillips, the agency’s managing director, welcomed Burchell and Ledsam to the team.

“Both Alexa and Bonnie are exceptional talent with a wealth of agency and client experience. They bring with them a hunger to shift the needle in what great work means to clients, as well as a willingness to work in an agile way to meet clients’ changing needs. We’re excited to see their careers grow with us and the great things we can achieve together,” he said.

The hires come fresh off the back of the appointment of Gemma Geraint as group account director, which was announced at the same time as Johnson.
