dentsu has announced the appointment of David Gallo-Martinez as senior client director at dentsu Western Australia following significant revenue growth in the first quarter of 2023 for the business.
Gallo-Martinez joins dentsu from Bonfire, where he has been a client director for the last five years, working across key clients such as Cedar Woods, RAC, Synergy, St John WA, and Water Corporation. He has also previously worked for Seven West Media, Reach Local & Sensis.
Shaun De Souza, dentsu Western Australia client partner, said: “We were looking for the next generation of Client Service professionals that have digital performance media skills and have a wider digital transformation mindset, to meet the changing needs of clients in the Perth market.
“David’s unique traditional media and digital skillset exceeded our expectations and we’re excited to have him join the dentsu Perth team,” he added.
Gallo-Martinez said of his new role: “I am thrilled to be working with Shaun, Jim and the team. I am excited about contributing my expertise to help dentsu Perth achieve its goals, and to be able to leverage the network to deliver first-class performance to clients.”
Gallo-Martinez’s appointment comes after dentsu International has announced the appointment of Gabe Mach as group digital director of dentsu Perth following significant revenue growth in the second half for the Western Australian business.
Mach joins from Bonfire where he has been for the last seven years, most recently as digital advertising product lead across key clients such as Synergy, St John WA, Water Corp, Furniture Bazaar and more.
Mach said of his new role: “I am looking forward to jumping right into the deep end and working with Jim and the wider dentsu business.
“My main goal has always been to push myself and step outside my comfort zone, so this next progression into a full-service integrated Holding Group brand is the right one. I am excited to work on major brands and use a broad set of channels to deliver next-level results!”
