After 25 years in the advertising industry and 18 and a half years at JWT, Judy van Dam will be leaving the industry at the end of July.
“We are very grateful to Judy and recognise her long standing commitment and influence both to JWT and to the industry as a whole. We wish her everything of the best and know that she will excel in her chosen field,” says CEO Modise Makhene.
“I have thought about this really hard over the last few months and have decided to launch out into a new direction. My time as MD of JWT Johannesburg, and more recently as a board member of the ACA, has been immensely rewarding. It’s now time for me to explore other opportunities. I leave JWT with much gratitude for so many happy years.”
Modise, ably assisted by Jim Faulds, COO of JWT South Africa, will oversee the Johannesburg operations as of 1 August.
