M&C Saatchi’s Andrew Condon moves to sport and entertainment specialist Gemba

The managing director of M&C Saatchi’s sport and entertainment arm has been appointed GM of Gemba’s Sydney office.

Andrew Condon will re-join the specialist marketing agency for sport and entertainment he left in 2009 to help set up M&C Sport and Entertainment.

In his new role Condon will report to director and CEO Rob Mills.

Mills said of Condon’s appointment: “I can’t recall being this excited about an appointment during my time here. I know I speak for Ben, James and Boyd when I say that it feels like we are bringing a member of the family home. Andrew has learnt and achieved so much since his first tenure at gemba. He epitomises the ‘gemba way’ and I know he will provide us with strong leadership in Sydney. He brings with him vast experience of the industry, which will undoubtedly help our brand clients develop and bring to life world class strategies across sport and entertainment.”

Condon said: “The vision that the Gemba partners have for the business is inspiring, as is the progress that has been made since 2009. The investments gemba makes in insights and intellectual capital and the calibre of its people make it the stand-out business in the industry for me and I can’t wait to get started.”

M&C Saatchi Sport and Entertainment global CEO Steve Martin will travel to Australia later this week to meet with the Australian team to plan the next steps to move the company forward.

Gemba’s clients include Toyota, Coca Cola, Lexus and Telstra.
