The Monkeys Sydney appoints Kiwi expat duo Lennie Galloway + Thomas Gled as associate CDs

The Monkeys, part of Accenture Song, has bolstered the creative department welcoming two new associate creative directors, Kiwi expat creative duo Lennie Galloway and Thomas Gledhill, who join from Goodby Silverstein & Partners in San Francisco.


Galloway and Gledhill have been working together for almost a decade. They began their career at FCB New Zealand, winning Cannes Young Lions as interns, and then went on to pick up metal at every major award show including Creative Team of the Year at AWARD.

The duo has just finished a four-year stint at Goodby Silverstein & Partners where they created award-winning work for Cheetos, Autodesk and Liberty Mutual. The team is now returning to the southern hemisphere and are excited to join The Monkeys in Sydney.

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

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

Says Tara Ford, chief creative officer, The Monkeys: “We are 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.”
