Publicis Mojo chief creative officer Craig Davis set to depart in March; Clemenger BBDO's Michael Dole to take head of art role in New Year

-1.jpgCraig Davis, chief creative officer of Publicis Mojo Australia and New Zealand, has resigned from the business to focus on creativity and innovation in a wider business context.

Davis joined Mojo in June 2009, six months after departing the worldwide creative director role at JWT.

Says Davis: "I've enjoyed my time at Mojo, it's a formidable creative company with great clients and wonderful people, but I'm passionate about applying design thinking and creativity to some new challenges."
Says Joe Pollard: "I want to thank Craig for his enormous contribution to the business over the last three years and wish him the very best for the future. He has been a great contributor to the creative leadership of Mojo and within the industry."

Davis will leave Mojo at the end of March, 2013.

Pim Van Nunen will continue to lead the creative department of Publicis Mojo in Sydney.
