M&C Saatchi appoints Russell Hopson as group MD

Russell Hopson has joined M&C Saatchi as group managing director across Australia.

Hopson joins the agency from Adam&Eve DDB in the UK where he was a group managing director for almost two years.

Hopson said: “The Group’s capabilities and scale put it on par with anywhere
else in the world right now”

The group managing director role is a newly created role for M&C Saatchi.

Jaimes Leggett, CEO of M&C Saatchi, said in a statement: “We went to market looking for the best in the business and I believe we’ve found it. Russell’s appointment brings incredible experience to our already formidable leadership team.”

Hopson said: “It took something really special to make me want to leave adam&eve/DDB; and this role at M&C Saatchi is precisely that.”
