Preston’s promotion follows on from the appointment of Ensemble CEO Melissa Fein to a wider IPG Mediabrands group role as CEO of Initiative Australia and Ensemble earlier this month.

IPG Mediabrands CEO, Danny Bass, said: “Harry has been central to the successful reengineering of Ensemble since the beginning of this year.

“He has led by example in the creation of breakthrough brand and experiential campaigns for clients. I have no doubt that he will continue to sharpen Ensemble’s skills in this highly engaging area for brands.”

Preston joined Ensemble as national GM in July 2014 having worked at Airborne Agency for nearly two years as group account director before that. Airborne was folded into Ensemble in August 2014.

Melissa Fein said Preston’s appointment was a natural step in Ensemble’s progress.“Harry is a highly creative client and team leader and I am looking forward to working with him in this next phase for Ensemble,” she said.

Commenting on his new role, Preston said: “Ensemble has developed many highly creative and successful brand campaigns and experiences for clients like Nestle, Lego, the Australian Grand Prix Corporation and KFC. I’m very excited to help drive its continued success.”
