MOULT TO HEAD UP HAVAS IN AUSTRALIA, ARNOLD/MOULT TO MERGE
The Moult Agency chairman Tom Moult (below left) has been appointed chairman of Havas in Australia, with responsibility for Euro RSCG Worldwide and a soon to be merged Arnold Australia and The Moult Agency. Under the new arrangement at Euro RSCG, Brendan Tansey, who has returned to the Sydney shop after nearly a decade overseas, has been appointed MD, replacing Glen Fraser, who left the agency at Christmas (and who is currently on gardening leave).
It is believed Anthony Gregorio will run a merged Arnold/Moult agency in both Sydney and Melbourne (with staff around the 70 mark), which will be rebranded in the next few weeks, and current Arnold Sydney CD Jay Furby (above left) will be creative director.
Arnold creative partner Rodd Martin and managing partner Russell Howcroft will leave the agency shortly to pursue other business opportunities. Both Martin and Howcroft recently sold their shares in Arnold to Havas, which now means all companies in the Australian group are 100 percent Havas owned.
