Following the elevation of Alistair Henderson to National Strategy Director, OMD announces the appointment of Simon Bellamy, who joins the strategy team in a consultancy capacity.
Simon will be a significant asset within the strategic community; he was the pioneer of strategic communications planning in the Australian marketplace. As Managing Director of The Media Palace, and Director of Bellamy Hayden, Simon has led the two most awarded agencies at the MFAs since their inception. Simon’s broad communication experience, coupled with Alistair’s credentials as the leading exponent of content and engagement strategies in Australia, will generate tremendous outcomes for OMD clients.
Peter Horgan said “To secure access to a strategist of Simon’s reputation and pedigree is a coup for our business, and our clients. It further augments our offering in total communications planning. Having worked with him for many years, I’m looking forward to the contribution of his insights, experience and humour”.
Alistair Henderson said “Working with Simon will be a thrill for me and the team. We have built a great rapport through this process, and are both looking forward to driving strategic innovation across our client base”.
Simon Bellamy said “I’m looking forward to working with Alastair and his team. Being close to the strategic planning product has always been my first love and the opportunity at OMD with its blue chip client list and diverse skill set was too tempting to pass by. I’ve known Peter a long time and the structure we agreed on lets me evolve my consultancy, and focus on what I enjoy most within an agency environment”.
