head of planning, Clemenger BBDO Melbourne /
Head of planning at Clemenger BBDO Melbourne, Jacqueline likes to think differently about what makes brands tick. Not good enough to accept that everything is lovely in the garden, let’s turn over a pebble or two and find the imperfection that might make the brand even more legitimate and compelling to customers. Let’s give creatives something to get their teeth into. A strategic planner building brands such as Myer, NAB, Bupa, Medibank, Schweppes, Mars, Target, ANZ, The Age and many others, Jacqueline’s work has been recognised at multiple award shows both in Australia and internationally.
