Jack Morton, a renowned global brand experience agency, has recently announced the promotion of Mike Kunheim to the position of President for EMEA and Asia.
This exciting news comes on the heels of a remarkable year for the agency, marked by the addition of over 50 new clients and substantial double-digit growth on a global scale. Particularly in the EMEA region, growth has doubled, while Asia has steadily progressed upward.
Kunheim, known for his bold approach to innovation and reimagining brand experiences, has been an integral part of Jack Morton for more than two decades. During his tenure, he has successfully secured and nurtured key clients such as Ericsson, Lenovo, and Samsung.
In his new role, Kunheim will oversee the agency’s offices in Germany and Singapore, working closely with the Middle East North Africa & Turkey (MENAT) operations. His primary focus will be on fostering stronger client relationships and championing cutting-edge creative craftsmanship across all teams. Additionally, he will continue to serve as the Managing Director of the London office. Kunheim will join the agency’s executive leadership team and be responsible for driving growth in both regions.
Kunheim’s promotion coincides with Julian Pullan, the Vice Chairman and President International, transitioning into a part-time executive advisory position, allowing him to step back from day-to-day operations. While maintaining his role as Vice Chairman, Pullan will concentrate on the agency’s overall growth. Pullan has been an integral part of Jack Morton since 2002.
Bill Davies, Global Co-President, expressed his admiration for Kunheim’s leadership, stating, “Mike consistently impresses us with his exceptional leadership skills. He is widely respected as an international leader and a driving force behind our growth. He has consistently demonstrated his ability to win new business and cultivate strong relationships.”
Davies added, “His extensive expertise, forward-thinking vision, and ability to foster exceptional teams are highly valued and respected, particularly in the ever-evolving landscape of brand experience.”
Reflecting on the transition, Julian Pullan said, “I am excited about the next chapter and equally thrilled to witness a seasoned and inspiring leader taking charge of the next phase of growth for our international operations. My 21 years at Jack Morton have undoubtedly been the most rewarding of my career, and I feel privileged to have been a part of the incredible Jack story, expanding the brand’s presence beyond the U.S. and working alongside the industry’s finest team. It is now time for a change, and I eagerly anticipate watching Mike achieve continued success across an expanded portfolio.”
Craig Millon, Global Co-President, also expressed his gratitude for Pullan’s contributions to the agency, particularly on an international scale. He added, “As Julian transitions into a new role, we are incredibly pleased to have Mike step up and assume new responsibilities, guiding our business into the future.”
