We are thrilled to announce that the Macleay College advertising graduate Lexi Mounsey has won the JWT ‘Rising Star’ award. From her first position as an Account Executive, she has rapidly proven herself and most recently stepped up to become an Account Manager at J Walter Thompson, one of the world’s leading advertising agencies. Congratulations Lexi, we are keen to hear where your journey takes you from here. And now a few words from Lexi herself:
“I started at J. Walter Thompson in May 2014 after finishing the Bachelor course at Macleay. After a 3 month stint travelling South America, the job hunt was on and lasted all but 1 week before landing an Account Executive role on the Kellogg’s account. Working across all mediums, and getting constant exposure to creative work kept me passionate about the industry and the work. This curiosity was rewarded when I received the ‘Rising Star’ Award for 2015. I’m learning something new every day, from people whose ideas are simply incredible and incredibly simple.
A year and a half later, an opportunity came up as an Account Manager in the agency and I transitioned into the role and my amazing new team at the start of 2016. “
