Des Speakman, the CEO of WhybinTBWATequila, has announced that the agency’s managing director, Tim Knight, is stepping down from his position to pursue ‘other opportunities within the industry’.

“Tim has done a great job and he leaves us with a strong, well integrated Tequila that benefits from an enhanced reputation in the market place. I take this opportunity to thank him for his commitment and to wish him every success in the future,” said Speakman.

“Its been a whirlwind 3.5 years with great memories,” explained Knight, “Both Tequila and WhybinTBWA as a whole have gone from strength to strength during this time. And, the industry has changed dramatically, creating opportunities that Im now keen to pursue.”

Charles Clapshaw has been appointed managing director of Tequila DigitalAustralia. Clapshaw was the national head of digital at The Furnace and he will join Tequila in early August 2009.

“Leading Tequila Digital is an ambition realised. Its a reunion with old friends as well as the opportunity to innovate with some of the most creative brains in the industry. Cant wait to hit the ground running. Let’s go!” exclaimed Clapshaw.
