Angus Jones has stepped down as CMO and general manager of marketing of LG Australia.

Jones has been in the role for over four years. Prior to LG, Jones held various marketing positions at Dell, also for just over four years. He also spent 11 years with Hewlett-Packard.

Jones told CMO having such a big portfolio kept the job interesting and provided many highlights and enormous job variety.  

"The thing I am most proud of is I joined the company with marketing in mess and left with an amazing team that worked for me and a strong foundation for the next person," he said. "Next for me is to find another such challenge where I will be empowered to build marketing capability to drive sales and be recognised for success."

On his LinkedIn page, Jones said it is time for his next adventure. “I have resigned as the CMO of LG Electronics after more than four years. During this time I am proud of unifying and reigniting a team who took their 21 categories to new heights including number one market share positions in both B2B and B2C categories,” he stated.

“Key to this success was enforcing a brand strategy across corporate and trade/retail channels whilst launching and building out new sub brands. I built a digital/social team that created a framework to better connect and resonate with customers and a PR function that took advantage of the good and minimised the bad. So now I look for my next challenge. My passion involves helping an organisation grow revenue and resonate with customers. I want to feel empowered and challenged and with 30 years’ experience across multiple billion dollar businesses and industries I have a lot to offer."

LG thanked Jones for his leadership of the brand during the past four years.

“Angus has overseen a period of growth and change during his time with the company. His deep understanding and experience has been invaluable, and we wish him well for the future,” LG said in a statement.

The company has begun a search for a new head of marketing. LG Australia will be working with partners and customers to ensure a seamless transition period.

Taking performance cues from east Asian markets

As the ‘Asian century’ becomes ever more prevalent and the Fourth Industrial Revolution gathers speed, marketers are having to surf a tidal wave of creative destruction. The choice is stark: Embrace change, or resign yourself to a Darwinian fate.

Searching for social and marketing data

Many marketers, agencies - and everyone in between - get caught up on bubble references and data points. They’ll use Facebook best practice as the only best practice for Facebook executions and only consider metrics and responses of the one channel they’re expected to deliver on.

Why Australia needs more leaders

A few weeks ago, our Prime Minister, Scott Morrison took it upon himself to tell companies and their CEOs where to go when it came to societal issues. It wasn’t an organisation’s place to get involved. Instead, he said it should be left to governments to solve societies challenges.
