Y&R Further Strengthens Wellington Office; Recruits Tim Huse for CD Role
Y&R NZ has today announced the appointment of Tim Huse to its award winning creative department.
Huse joins the agency to bolster its Wellington offer, bringing greater strategic and creative thinking to Wellington clients.
Huse has over 16 years of experience including stints at Colenso BBDO, Saatchi & Saatchi and served as dreative director at Sugar and TBWA. He has been recognised multiple times at Cannes Lions, One Show, D&AD, AWARD and Axis.
Y&R Wellington's managing director, Tim Ellis, says he is delighted to have Huse partner him in growing the Wellington arm of the agency.
Born and bred in Wellington, Huse says he's looking forward to immersing himself in his hometown and continuing to build upon the body of world-class work that the agency has become renowned for.
Says Huse: "It has been wonderful seeing Josh, Steve, Tim and the team take Y&R NZ from strength to strength. I'm looking forward to joining an agency that's bringing such a strong creative focus to reaching its clients' goals. It's going to be a lot of fun."
Says Josh Moore CEO and CCO, Y&R: "It's brilliant to have Tim Huse joining the team. As the agency has continued to grow our client base broadens further putting more and more pressure on our top CDs. Bringing a CD of Tim's calibre into the ranks means we now have the resources to continue to deliver the very best work across every client.
"Tim Huse and Tim Ellis (The Tims) are a very complimentary duo, they both have a drive and confidence that's going to be hard to beat. We're expecting them to become a powerful force in Wellington in a very short time."
Incumbent Y&R Wellington creative director, Seymour Pope, is returning to Melbourne and joining the Y&R Melbourne team.
Says Moore: "Seymour has been a fantastic asset in our Wellington office, but he was only ever going to stay for a short time as his heart belongs in his spiritual home of Melbourne, where he will now be joining our Y&R Melbourne team. We'll still be working closely together on our Trans-Tasman clients."
