White had been working as the Executive Creative Director/Executive Vice President and Chief Design Officer of Doner in the USA since 2009.

On his return, he‘ll be tasked with managing Melbourne’s creative work with clients including REA, Simplot, John West, Leggo’s, KMart and Brown Brothers.

“We’ve been on the search for the right person to help lead our growing Melbourne team,” said Carl Ratcliff, Managing Director of BWM Melbourne.

“I knew when I first spoke to Murray that I had found my business match. We both have a big vision for the agency and about the journey on which we can take our clients.”

White previously worked on creative for Olympus and Mercedes-Benz, and won awards at Cannes, D&AD, Clio, Eurobest, Epica, LIAA and ADC.

“I’m truly fortunate to have worked with so many incredible brands and brand leaders all over the world,” White said.

“After many years abroad though, the opportunity to move back home and work with Australia’s biggest independent agency was too good to pass up.

“BWM is vibrant and growing, and I’m looking forward to bringing some of the creative inspiration I’ve gained internationally to a team renowned for getting Australians talking.”

Rob Belgiovane, BWM Executive Creative Director said: “BWM has experienced exponential growth this past year. We saw a need to bring in a creative at an executive level in Melbourne to bring our clients an added depth of award winning experience.

“Murray is renowned internationally for big ideas across new and traditional media executed with precision and attention to detail. We’re excited to bring him on-board to lead our team in new and innovative directions,” he said.
