Y&R NZ Promotes Tom Paine and Kim Pick to Creative Leader Roles
Y&R New Zealand has announced the
appointment of Kim Pick (centre) and Tom Paine (left) as joint creative
leaders, following Josh Moore's departure as CCO earlier this year.
With over 20 years of global advertising experience on some of the world's biggest brands, Pick has worked at leading agencies in Australia, Singapore, London, New York and New Zealand. Pick joined Y&R from Colenso BBDO earlier this year and now works alongside Tom Paine, leading the creative for both the Auckland and Wellington offices.
Says Kim: "Together, Josh, Tom and the team at Y&R have created a string of stand out, stellar campaigns, as well as a can-do culture that delivers for our clients.
Paine has been with Y&R for almost 7 years (with the last 18 months as ECD), and has amassed a client roster that includes recent partners Countdown and Burger King. In 2016, Paine was ranked the world's #1 Creative Director (Big Won Report), and was instrumental in leading Y&R NZ to Agency of the Year titles at D&AD, AWARD, and Campaign Brief, and the 2017 North American Grand Effie.
