Over the past year and a bit, Y&R NZ has been undergoing something of a transformation (as its logo said, ‘re-est. 2012’). And, along with a new brand, new sub-brands and a swanky new office in the Auckland CBD, there have also been a host of changes to the staff roster in recent months.
A galaxy of stars/people with faces for radio gathered at Atico Cocina in Auckland yesterday to listen to the year’s best radio ads.

The brief from TVNZ to the young advertising whippersnappers was to get more viewers to tune into ONE’s flagship 6pm bulletin.

The other finalists were Jen Waldron and Ben Polkinghorne of AdSchool and Adam Martin of AUT University’s Creative Advertising School.
