Hennah takes Ogilvy's creative reins

Having recently departed his executive creative director role at JWT Sydney to return to New Zealand, Angus Hennah has joined a different member of the WPP family and taken the role of executive creative director at Ogilvy. 

Rated among the top ECDs in the Asia-Pacific region, Hennah has been awarded at all major and local creative shows including multiple Cannes Lions across film, cyber, outdoor and media categories and he replaces Damon O'Leary, who left his post in November but continued to work with the agency as a consultant.

Throughout his career, including time spent as executive creative director at JWT NZ, Hennah has worked on many high profile brands including Nestlé, Kellogg’s, Nokia, Unilever, Energizer-Schick, Ford, AMP, Tourism New Zealand, Land Transport New Zealand, HSBC and The National Bank.

When he left Sydney he said: "It’s been a rewarding five years with JWT but it’s time to face some new challenges. And with Oscar our first child about to start rugby, I mean school, it felt like the right time to head home.” And now he says he can't wait to get amongst Ogilvy's "huge multifaceted offering in both Auckland and Wellington". 

Paul Manning, executive director of Ogilvy New Zealand, says strengthening the company’s creative offering will continue to be the number one priority at Ogilvy with Hennah working across the company’s 360 degree offering. 

"In Ogilvy we have built an agency with the spirit of integration at its core. Our strength comes from the depth of our capabilities. Angus has a great track record in delivering ideas that span from brand to purchase, and that’s the key to our future. We’re delighted to welcome Angus aboard."         

He started officially today.

Industry welcomes KPEX, but also asks a few questions

While yesterday's announcement by the nation's big four publishers about the creation of a joint ad exchange has largely been welcomed by the industry as positive move that could, if effective, serve to keep a bigger chunk of ad spend in the local market rather than feeding it into the international exchanges, it has also raised a few questions that will need to be answered as it comes into effect. We chat to the big brains at Countdown, Foodstuffs, OMD, Vivaki, Acquire Online, ANZA, Bauer and TVNZ about their thoughts on this move.
