TBWA\NZ ECD Christy Peacock departs TBWA Auckland

TBWA\NZ executive creative director Christy Peacock has resigned from his position and is departing the agency after three years.

Peacock joined TBWA\NZ in 2015 after departing his role at Joy in Sydney. He will be returning to his family home in Brisbane at Christmas.

“I’ve been on the road for a few years now growing my career, my experience and clients’ businesses but the time has come to get my family settled back in Australia in time for my girls to start high school. I look forward to bringing my experience and knowledge to Brisbane where we will live,” says Peacock.

“It’s been an awesome three years for us here in New Zealand and we’ve loved every minute of it. I leave TBWA\NZ in a strong position for success and I look forward to watching them to grow and prosper over the years ahead. I only wish I could take the whanau that I’ve made at the agency with me."

During his time at TBWA\NZ Peacock’s creative leadership was instrumental in grow the company by winning independent Liquor New Zealand brands last year.

Whittaker's divides the court of public opinion – but all for a good cause

On Monday, Whittaker’s launched its latest novelty chocolate-lolly mash up with a chocolatey answer to retro bakesale treat coconut ice. The Coconut Ice Surprise chocolate has a twist though, 20c from each block goes to Plunket – a charity which New Zealanders agree is a worthy cause. However, to relate the chocolate to the charity, Whittaker's has built the campaign around baby gender reveal parties, causing a backlash from the public who argue gender norms have expanded beyond blue for boys and pink for girls.
