MullenLowe Profero snares Deepends’ Hamilton Jones as managing director after Chris Henderson exits

MullenLowe Profero has snared the managing director of Deepend, Hamilton Jones, to become its managing director.

Jones takes on the new role after the previous managing director of MullenLowe Profero, Chris Henderson, relocated to Amsterdam to become the MD of ad agency AKQA in August.

Jones exits marketing and communications agency Deepend after two years

Prior to joining Deepend as its managing director, Jones was the business director at Wipro Digital for nine months after departing UM Australia as its chief digital officer.

“Being able to contribute to the journey of transformation in digital through an agency like MullenLowe Profero is an exciting opportunity,” Jones said in a statement.

“The team here is well established with highly capable experience design and product development people, and I’m really looking forward to getting started.”

Vincent Digonnet, MullenLowe Group APAC CEO, thanked Henderson for his time spent transforming the digital agency and welcomed Jones to the agency.

“Hamilton’s 20 years of digital experience, spanning strategy, service design, product development, media and marketing, make him such an exciting appointment for us at this particular point in time.

“His experience and his skills will allow us not only to strengthen our capabilities, but to scale them. We are delighted to welcome him to the team.”

Jones is the third managing director for the agency since 2016 after Dave Bently departed after eight years in 2016 and Henderson exited last month.
