    The Monkeys taps Silverstein & Partners’ Lennie Galloway and Thomas Gledhill

    The Monkeys, part of Accenture Song, has nabbed Goodby, Silverstein & Partners’ Lennie Galloway and Thomas Gledhill as associate creative directors.

    The duo return to Australia after a four-year stint at the San Fransisco full-service agency, where they created work for clients including Cheetos, Autodesk, and Liberty Mutual. 

    “We’ve had our eye on The Monkeys for years, so we’re feeling pretty lucky to now work here,” said Galloway.

    “There’s something about their creativity, and the work in the southern hemisphere in general, that always impresses on a global stage, and we’re excited to be a part of it again. We’re also excited for people to understand our accents again.”

    Galloway and Gledhill have been working together for almost a decade, beginning their career at FCB New Zealand where they won Cannes Young Lions as interns. They have since gone onto score at most major awards shows including Creative Team of the Year at AWARD. 

    “It was a hard decision to leave the US, but the opportunity to join The Monkeys made it an absolute no brainer,” added Gledhill.

    “They’ve launched some of the most ambitious, well-crafted work in the world and we can’t wait to be a part of the team. There’s something in the water down here, besides sharks.”

    The Monkeys’ chief creative officer, Tara Ford, said the creative agency was “thrilled to welcome Lennie and Thomas fresh from The States and to have them join the team. Great people. Great talents. We cannot wait to see the brilliant things they will do.”

    Accenture Song, the creative consultancy arm of professional services giant Accenture and owner of The Monkeys, has sparked a stir by nabbing Initiative’s three most senior leaders, CEO Melissa Fein, MD Sam Geer, and chief strategy and product officer Chris Colter. The trio will set up a full service media unit within Accenture Song.

    Accenture Song ANZ President Mark Green said of the hires: “There is no doubt that media is a business growth driver and strategic differentiator for our clients.”
