Jeremy Taine has resigned as executive creative director at Ogilvy effective 12 November. Basil Christensen and Damon O’Leary have been named as joint executive creative directors and will oversee Ogilvy’s national creative department.
Jeremy joined Ogilvy when the company he owned with Roy Meares, MTC, was acquired. Over the last three years, Ogilvy’s creative profile and reputation has been showcased and awarded, much of this due to Jeremy’s talent. Most recently Ogilvy was awarded gold Effies for Best in Show and Sustained Success.
“I'm genuinely thrilled with this new creative leadership team and am very much looking forward to working with them as we capitalise on the foundation Jeremy and Roy helped establish,” states Ogilvy managing director Greg Partington.
While the majority of political messages focus on rousing an individual’s sense of civic and democratic duty (such as Rock the Vote), Vice NZ is taking a slightly different route with its latest partnership with the Electoral Commission called ‘We Are New Zealand’.
