Denise Wong Joins Midnight Oil as President

By Erik Oster 

Back in December, Denise Wong left her position as president of Project Worldwide experiential agency George P. Johnson (GPJ) for “another opportunity.”

Today, we learned that Wong has joined Imagine-owned agency Midnight Oil as president.

“Denise’s visionary leadership style and ability to create, motivate, and deploy cohesive and talented teams will further evolve Midnight Oil’s innovative offering” Imagine CEO John Hans, said in a statement. “We are thrilled that Denise is joining our leadership team to fuel inject the agency’s trajectory.”

Wong spent the past five years as president of GPJ, leading its nine offices in North America. Prior to joining GPJ she served in management positions for Grey Canada and MacLaren McCann.

“Creating experiences for brands to authentically connect with consumers where they live and play is essential in an increasingly cluttered landscape filled with cynical shoppers,” Wong added. “Having worked across the financial, automotive, consumer packaged goods, and technology sectors, I’m ready to bring my skills and best practices to Midnight Oil’s leading brands including Warner Bros. Pictures, Netflix, Activision and SoftBank Robotics.”
