Saatchi & Saatchi Sydney Appoints Rebecca Carrasco to Deputy ECD Role
Saatchi & Saatchi Sydney has appointed Rebecca Carrasco as deputy executive creative director, effective immediately. She will work alongside deputy executive creative director Sesh Moodley and chief creative officer Mike Spirkovski.
In 2015, Carrasco was lured away from her role as creative director at Clemenger BBDO Sydney to become head of Creative Shop for Facebook and Instagram, Australia and New Zealand. Prior to Clemenger, Carrasco was co-founder and executive creative director at Colman Rasic Carrasco.
Her own agency, Colman Rasic Carrasco, was AdNews Emerging Agency of the Year 2008 and she has received an Australia Day Award for studies in Visual Communication. Carrasco has been a director on the Australasian Writers & Art Directors (AWARD) Committee and served as the National AWARD School head.
Says Spirkovski: "Rebecca is an inspiring creative leader who has accomplished much in her career and I'm thrilled to have her join Saatchi & Saatchi.
"Her work is outstanding, as is her passion for helping nurture the aspiring future talents of our industry. Above all, Rebecca is brave, highly optimistic and shares our passion for making work that matters."
Says Carrasco: "Everyone strives for amazing work, but achieving it comes down to the people around you, and their desire to see others succeed. I've worked with Mike Spirkovski before; we're excited by the same work and I really respect the way people are encouraged to get to it. I've given a lot of consideration to what's next, and I now look forward to joining what is already a great team."
