Jeremy Taine Resigns as ECD of Ogilvy NZ
14 October 2009
Jeremy Taine has resigned as Executive Creative Director at Ogilvy effective 12 November. Basil Christensen and Damon O’Leary have been named as Joint Executive Creative Directors and will oversee Ogilvy’s national creative department.
Jeremy joined Ogilvy when the company he owned with Roy Meares, MTC, was acquired. Over the last three years, Ogilvy’s creative profile and reputation has been showcased and awarded, much of this due to Jeremy’s talent.
“I'm genuinely thrilled with this new Creative Leadership Team and am very much looking forward to working with them as we capitalise on the foundation Jeremy and Roy helped establish,” states Ogilvy Managing Director Greg Partington.
“We all wish Jeremy and his family well as they explore new opportunities.”
Ogilvy is one of New Zealand’s largest and most respected advertising agencies and was awarded with two gold effies including ‘Best In Show’ at the CAANZ Effectiveness Awards on Thursday.
