Wilson Splits from Energy BBDO

Just over a year after joining Chicago-based Energy BBDO as SVP/group creative director, Leon Wilson has headed back home Down Under. From what we’ve been told, though, Wilson is staying within the Omnicom-owned network and assuming the chief creative officer role at Proximity Melbourne, aka Clemenger Proximity.

During his yearlong stint at Energy BBDO, Wilson helped serve as a lead creative on the agency’s Wrigley account in his GCD role, working on efforts such as this anthropomorphic spot for Orbit from earlier this year. From what we’ve been told, Wilson’s last day at Energy BBDO was actually Aug. 30 and that the agency does plan to replace him. Prior to Energy, Wilson spent two-and-a-half years as a GCD at Fallon, working on accounts including Travelers and Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. During his career, the Kiwi native also served in senior creative roles at the likes of Publicis Mojo and Colenso BBDO.
