The founder of Perth-based lobbying firm GRA Everingham has been named the next chief executive of Marketforce, succeeding John Driscoll, who has announced his retirement today.
Paul Everingham left GRA in December last year to go on a sabbatical, but will return to work to take up the helm at Marketforce, WA's second largest advertising agency, when Mr Driscoll steps down in September.
He will also be chief executive of the WA business of OMD, Australia’s largest media planning and buying group.
GRA, Marketforce and OMD are all part of the Clemenger Group.
“He is an extraordinarily creative, entrepreneurial and energetic individual with highly developed business networks around Australia.”
“John has done a superb job leading Marketforce for the last 13 years,” Mr Morgan said.
“He is a great advertising leader, as well as a highly principled and professional executive.
“I would like to thank John for a magnificent career with Marketforce and wish him well in the next phase of his career.”
