Special Group's Rob Jack set to depart

After 10 years with Special Group, creative partner Rob Jack has announced his departure.

Jack has been working to build up the agency since he founded it in 2007 with Tony Bradbourne and Heath Lowe, and in his announcement says he’s loved doing so.

“It’s given me huge enjoyment and satisfaction. But now it’s time to make a change. I am looking forward to working in a different way, and creating a different balance.”

He says he will be doing strategic consultancy, pitch support and concept generation on a freelance basis for organisations that need heavyweight advice and content without the permanent commitment of someone of his seniority.

Over the past 10 years, Jack has worked on Special Group’s most awarded campaigns, like Orcon’s ‘Iggy Pop’, Smirnoff ‘Pure Potential’, Paspaley Pearls’ collaboration with Anna Funder, 2degrees ‘Play the Bridge’, the Molenberg Sandwich Shop.

He also worked on the ‘Most Creative Country In The World’ Axis Awards film.

“I’m really proud of what we have achieved at Special Group over the last 10 years, he says. “Growing a world class business from scratch has been amazing.”

About the departure, managing partner Michael Redwood says Jack has been a key part of Special Group’s success and growth.

“He’s a strategic thinker with real creative firepower. We admire his stance in choosing a different way to work, and send him off with huge thanks and best wishes.”

Jack will stay with Special Group until 7 July.
