    Axford said Collins to the growth team and noted that his track record and extensive experience in media were factors that made him an ideal leader to spearhead Claxon’s expansion efforts, both locally and globally.

    “Brian’s deep passion for his craft aligns seamlessly with our culture, which places high value on curiosity, creativity, and collaborative spirit. As we move forward, Brian’s leadership will play a pivotal role in helping our clients navigate and excel in this transformative era, driven by digital and AI technologies.”

    Collins he was looking forward to taking on the new challenge that will allow him to leverage key capabilities the independent agency has invested in, particularly integrating AI into clients’ marketing strategies.

    “My heart will always be in paid social & ecommerce but as the landscape has changed – an omnichannel approach is required. In recent years my focus has moved towards growth and I’m super excited to finally get to join the agency that was my first pick when moving to Australia, at a pivotal time in their evolutionary journey.”

    Daniel Willis said: “After a two years courtship and Brian packing up his life and moving from the UK to Australia, it’s great to finally have him onboard. His appointment follows our people ethos of ‘Better people are better’ and he brings a wealth of experience, and charisma, and good old Irish humour into a key role as we continue to scale up.”
