“I’m excited to welcome Nick and David to our team. The diverse leadership roles David has held within the industry, along with Nick’s ability to develop communications strategy that connects human experiences to business outcomes will serve to strengthen the depth of firepower of our Melbourne office, further enhancing our ability to drive commercial value for our clients,” said Melbourne MD Stuart Jaffray.

Bauer’s position was created following a restructure of the agency’s strategy team. He has also worked at Maxus and Starcom’s sister agency, Spark Foundry.

Campbell joins from his own management consultancy firm, 37 Degrees South, and was previously national general manager at Posterscope. He has also held strategy and investment roles at Vizeum, Emitch and OMD.
