PHD’s Stewart Gurney joins indie media agency Kaimera

Former chief strategy officer of PHD, Stewart Gurney, has joined independent full-service media agency Kaimera.

In his new role as chief strategy officer at the agency, Gurney will ‘supercharge’ the company’s strategic and planning capabilities.

Gurney was with PHD for more than eight years before leaving in May, and was instrumental in delivering the company’s consistent growth and new business wins, as well as developing its award-winning strategic and innovation product. He said he was excited to be taking on a new challenge at Kaimera.

“I’m excited about contributing to something that’s truly independent and uniquely Australian. It’s an excellent opportunity to help build an agency that puts the Australian consumer and media marketplace at its heart and drives real value for their client partners,” said Gurney.

“Kaimera sits in an interesting space within the market. It has senior talent and capabilities, a strong passion for trust and transparency, and the rare ability to tailor its offering to the real needs and requirements of its clients.”

Nick Behr, Kaimera founder and CEO said, “At a time when others are sitting back and watching, it’s a chance for Kaimera to grow the team and continue to build a strong proposition in market.

“Stewart’s resume speaks for itself and we are delighted to have someone of his ability, experience and character to drive Kaimera forward through his distinguished marketing thinking.”

Kaimera recently promoted Conor Riordan to client director and Jade Harley to brand, social and content director, and is currently hiring for two roles.
