Movember Foundation appoints Clemenger BBDO Melbourne’s Jason Olive as Australian marketing director

Former communications strategy director for Clemenger BBDO Melbourne, Jason Olive, has been appointed as Australian marketing director for men’s health charity, the Movember Foundation.

In his new position, Olive will be leading the marketing and communications team and working to increase awareness of Movember’s brand throughout the year with ongoing campaigns.

Olive has left Clemenger BBDO Melbourne to become the Australian marketing director of the Movember Foundation

Olive was appointed to Clemenger BBDO Melbourne in December 2017. Previously, he was the head of strategy and content at Mediabrands’ Society, and worked at Kamber as the strategy lead.

Olive said he is passionate about the work that Movember does and is looking forward to his new role.

“I’ve always admired the innovative work that Movember does – an organisation that is truly committed to change the face of men’s health. The leading cause of men dying between 15 and 44 is suicide, so it’s an issue that needs to stay firmly on the agenda in Australia,” said Olive.

“I’m looking forward to joining such a smart and passionate group of marketers, helping create and embed strong synergies between the power of great creative and intelligent use of media.”

Movember’s chief marketing officer Juliette Smith said: “We’re really excited for Jason to join the team at Movember Australia. Not only will he bring a wealth of strategic knowledge to the local team, but he also brings broad digital experience alongside an excellent track record of delivering game-changing campaigns and results for brands.

“Movember Australia was extremely successful last year, engaging more than 85,000 Mo Bro’s and Sistas who raised in excess of $25m for men’s health. This has left us in the enviable position to be able to build and develop our local marketing team, which in turn will help us to reach more men than ever before.”
