When Everingham returned from sabbatical to take on the Marketforce role, Clemenger Group chairman Robert Morgan said Everingham was highly qualified for the position.

Clemenger Group chairman Robert Morgan said: “I would like to thank Paul Everingham and wish him well for the future. We are committed to ensuring the ongoing success of our business in Perth and giving it the full resources of the Clemenger Group in the new era of data-led, new-age digital communications. Marketforce will become much closer to the Clemenger BBDO Network in the future. At the same time as continuing its proud WA heritage”.
