The Year in Review: Justin Mowday

It was a year of light and shade for DDB NZ. In the plus column, it took the no. 1 ranking at Spikes Asia, won more Cannes Lions than ever, was named the Campaign Asia Agency of the Year, won most effective agency at the Effies for the second year in a row, welcomed new clients BMW/Mini, Speights and Telecom (through Dynamo) and made some fairly big changes to the executive structure as Sandy Moore stepped back and Chris Riley stepped in. On the other side of the equation, it was forced to let a few staff go late in the year after losing VW and George Weston Foods to Colenso BBDO and it's currently seeking a new ECD after Andy Fackrell took up a regional role in Australia. Here's managing director Justin Mowday stoking a few coals.

After ringing the changes, The Warehouse challenges the doubters with DDB's instore experiment

The Warehouse has transformed its offering in recent times, allocating $430 million over five years to refit its stores, improve the customer experience, increase the number of staff on the floor, stock a better range of products and brands and communicate the offer more effectively with the market. That's led to nine consecutive quarters of profit growth and an increase in sales to $1.55 billion. But while its regular customers were aware of all the improvements, those who had written it off years ago still had some engrained negative perceptions. So, with the help of DDB, it's faced up to them with The Warehouse Challenge.

So to celebrate its transition into the teens, it's been given a thorough going over, with a new look and feel created by Intebrand and a new self-aware print, radio and digital campaign via DDB that aims to attract a broader demographic and position Rialto as 'The Storyteller'.

And in another big change, Mowday will be working closely with Chris Riley, who is moving from his role as managing director at OMD into the newly created role of chief operating officer.

Westpac's Martine Jager on asking questions, getting answers and New Zealand's dire financial literacy stats

As the centrepiece of Westpac's new 'Start Asking' campaign shows, New Zealanders can talk about almost everything these days, whether it be politics, religion, war, sex, existential issues and, of course, Rugby World Cup wins. But, as Westpac's general manager of marketing and customer experience Martine Jager says, we're still not comfortable talking about money. So can the bank actually change that?
