In Australia, Egan worked at Droga 5 as a senior copywriter, Publicis Mojo, DDB Melbourne, and The George Agency.

She is also creator of the game ‘Cumming or Drumming’, which has two million players and a number two spot on Reddit.

Clemenger BBDO chief creative officer, Stephen de Wolf, said: “Having Lea join the agency is a huge coup. She’s a fantastic human with incredible talent and she’s demonstrated that talent across such a wide variety of mediums and clients and we’re thrilled to have her return home and join our team.”

Egan said of her appointment: “I am so excited to join Wolfie and the team here at Clemenger BBDO. It’s a brilliant agency with an unbeatable creative pedigree. I feel lucky to be joining the ranks.”

Egan is the latest recruitment from overseas for the agency. In September, creatives Dal Evans de Almeida and Michael Hughes joined the agency from AMV BBDO in London. A month later, the agency announced the hire of Jacob Gjelstrup Björdal and Jim Nilsson as senior creatives from McCann in London.
