Ogilvy Melbourne Expands Creative Team with Promotions and New Hires
Ogilvy Melbourne has announced a series of promotions and new hires, promoting a number of senior people and welcoming new creative talent.

Sharon Condy (left) and Josh Murrell (right) have been promoted to creative directors, reporting to executive creative director David Ponce de León.

Condy and Murrell moved to Ogilvy from AJF in 2015, and have held creative roles at Grey, CHE and DDB Group Melbourne; picking a raft of creative awards for their efforts at international shows including Cannes, Spikes Asia and AWARD.

Says Ponce de León: "Sharon and Josh have been part of every successful new business pitch we had in the last 18 months. In addition, they've also been responsible for some of our most successful brand launches. They are humble, hard-working, down-to-earth and collaborative. They are the embodiment of Ogilvy's quiet achiever. They are seasoned professionals and their promotion is very much deserved."

Alex Karsten (1).jpgKarsten Jurkschat (left) and Alex Little (right) have also been promoted to senior art director and senior copywriter, respectively.

Says Ponce de León: "The boys have been quite busy making waves since their start as a creative team here at Ogilvy with some of our biggest brands, including the AAMI SmartPlates innovation project. Their attention to detail, craftsmanship and passion for the work is outstanding. They've also been regular new business contributors, so it was only fair they were provided with a bigger canvas in which to leave their mark."

In the last year, Ogilvy Melbourne has added Priceline, Lion, BP, Fletcher Building Group, Mondelez and The Melbourne Convention Bureau to its client roster, in addition to a number of Victorian Government and digital projects.

Says Gavin MacMillan, managing partner of Ogilvy Melbourne: "As we prepare for another year of growth, it was evident to all of us in the Melbourne leadership team that we needed additional depth to our creative offering. They were all obvious choices. I'm very proud that we were able to promote from within our existing ranks, and we look forward to see them all grow into their new roles."

Ogilvy Melbourne has also recently added four new creatives to its department, teams Carly Dallwitz and Sue Lorenz plus Zac Blakemore and Grga Calic, who will work through the line across the entire client portfolio.

Says Ponce de León: "I am thrilled to welcome an exceptional group of young creatives to our team and to promote some of our outstanding talent to help lead the creative department. I'm certain they will all help us continue our upward trajectory in new business, effectiveness and creativity. I believe Ogilvy Australia currently hosts some of Australia's most exciting talent across disciplines and I'm immensely proud to be part of this winning team."
