Ben Cunnington has spent the last 19 years developing a diverse portfolio by focusing on a combination of strategy, innovation and client-side roles.
Ben has always tried to look to work with category innovators, from being part of Naked Communications, working for Telstra when it was redefining its customer experience to helping launch Jumptank (an innovation division of Dentsu Aegis) in Australia.
Moving to the region in December 2014, Ben quickly assimilated to, and has embraced the speed and scale of the APAC market. The market has presented Ben with some exciting challenges and also opportunities including for him to focus on his passion of always delivering realistic, insight-led business solutions built on simple yet powerful ideas. To do this, he has often had to counteract the unnecessary and over-complicated approach taken by other 'strategic types'.
Ben's proudest career highlights include the two Cannes Media Lions awarded to him for Masterfoods and Golf Punk. He looks forward to sitting on the AMES judging panel to review the no doubt high calibre of work from this years entries.
