New brand and consumer marketing chiefs at CommBank

Bank confirms Monique MacLeod as new general manager of consumer marketing, replacing Martin Whelan

The Commonwealth Bank has confirmed Monique MacLeod as its new general manager, consumer marketing, replacing consumer chief, Martin Whelan.

MacLeod (pictured) is currently the general manger of brand, sponsorship and marketing operations at the banking institution, a position she has held for five years. Prior to that, she spent seven years with McCann Erickson as client services director. She has also worked for DDB and Ogilvy and Mather.

MacLeod replaces Whelan, who has held the role for four years and was also formerly the general manager of brand marketing.

CommBank has also confirmed Aussie Bank general manager of product and marketing, Stuart Tucker, will take over the general manager of brand, sponsorship and marketing operations role vacated by MacLeod. He has spent more than six years with the rival home loans group, and previously spent more than a decade in various marketing roles at Optus.

MacLeod and Tucker’s new role commence from Monday 9 December.

CommBank’s latest appointments come two months after CommBank confirmed Vittoria Shortt as the new group CMO. She took over the reins from Andy Lark, who announced his plans to leave the role back in May.

You’re doing it wrong: Emotion doesn’t mean emotional

If you’ve been around advertising long enough, you’ve probably seen (or written) a slide which says: “They won’t remember what you say, they’ll remember how you made them feel.” But it’s wrong. Our understanding of how emotion is used in advertising has been ill informed and poorly applied.
