De Bonis, one of the founding partners of Work Club, which was acquired by Havas in 2014, has left to take a managing director role with a specific focus on strategic accounts and scaling Accenture Interactive’s creative futures offer.

Creative Futures is a "brand experience accelerator", drawing on talent from the Accenture Interactive agency network.

The management consultancy has been beefing up its creative since acquiring Karmarama in late 2016. In December 2017 it acquired Ireland’s Rothco – its 10th acquisition in marketing services of the year.

In August last year, rival consultancy firm Deloitte Digital hired De Bonis’ former partner Andy Sandoz, another of the Work Club founders and an ex-joint executive creative director at Havas London, to lead its creative services division.

Joy Bhattacharya, head of Accenture Interactive UK and Ireland, said: "Lisa joining Accenture Interactive is an exciting development and she will bring a wealth of expertise to an already strong management team in the UK and Ireland. Her rich experience of working across agencies and her entrepreneurial streak will strengthen Accenture Interactive in our mission to help clients create and deliver the best experiences for their customers."
