Downes comes with 16 years industry experience, working across agencies in Australia, New Zealand, and Thailand. She said: “M&C has been an agency that I’ve watched and aspired to work with for a very long time.

“I feel fortunate to have joined the impressive Melbourne team at a time of such growth and opportunity.”

Meanwhile, Scott is joining to lead the Origin Energy team. M&C Saatchi won the account in early 2021, and Scott brings experience working at Colenso BBDO, Clemenger BBDO Melbourne, FCB Wellington and Ogilvy Melbourne.

She said: “Like anyone who believes in creativity, I want to be part of bringing something truly special to life.

“I’m also thrilled to be reunited at M&C Saatchi Melbourne with some of the people I’ve respected most, in my agency experiences”

Moring’s new role as head of media will unite M&C Saatchi’s creative and media offerings, and he joins from Cummins & Partners with 15 years of network and independent agency experience.

He said: “I’m excited to join an integrated agency that combines the power of creativity and consumer context to create more meaningful brand connections.

“Today’s fragmented market requires cohesion and we’re in a strong position to deliver this to help drive brand growth for our partners.”

M&C Saatchi Australia MD, Michael McEwan, said: “First and foremost, we are a team that likes each other.

“Being able to find and attract talented people is one thing, but what really matters is how that team comes together, how they lift each other to create great work.”
