Leo Burnett Jakarta hires Sutton

Steve Bonnell, technical advisor at Leo Burnett Kreasindo, said: “Basically the job is to lead the account management and the client management with a particular focus on our latest win Telkomsel.”

Bonnell said Sutton was “a strong strategic guy in terms of ability to lead senior clients. He also has a strong creative orientation. That’s why we believe he will be an asset.”

In May Leo Burnett won the creative account of Telkomsel, Indonesia's largest telco, after a final three-way pitch. Telkomsel has handed its media to MEC.

Prior to joining Publicis, Sutton was a group account director with JWT Singapore where he spent three years and worked on brands such as HSBC, Nestlé and Samsung. He has 13 years of experience in advertising.

A Publicis spokeswoman said that the agency is currently in the process of appointing a regional business director for Citibank. The new person is likely to join by the end of this month.
