As Flight Digital builds momentum, the independent agency has announced the addition of Creative Director Jeff Harris to its leadership team.
Joining from customer experience agency TRACK NZ, where he was Creative Director for over five years, Harris has held creative leadership roles with world-leading agencies both locally and overseas.
He brings extensive experience in crafting innovative ideas for brands including Westpac, McDonald’s and Vodafone. His vast body of work has been recognised at the NZDM, Effie, Webby and D&AD Awards.
Harris says: “Flight Digital is in an incredibly exciting position right now. Their quality of craft, best-in-class technology offering and ability to adapt has them well positioned to become one of the country’s leading agencies. My roots are in digital and it feels like I’ve come full circle, joining an agency that’s crafting meaningful experiences at the intersection of strategy, creative and tech.
“The talent here is exceptional, and I’m really looking forward to helping our team and clients create work we’re all proud of.”
Flight Digital Managing Director Victor Green says: “We couldn’t think of anyone better suited to the agency than Jeff. Not only is he arguably one of the most experienced digitally-led creative directors in the country; he’s a humble, kind and genuine guy who truly cares about growing people and delivering game changing work.
“Jeff’s creative leadership paired with our strategic, technology and performance marketing offerings has potential to raise the bar, which really excites me.”
Harris joins Flight Digital at a time of significant growth. The agency has nearly doubled in size over the past 12 months, with former Isobar NZ CEO Ian Howard and tech entrepreneur Taylor Abernethy-Newman joining its leadership team recently.
