Whybin\TBWA\TEQUILA expands creative skill sets with two new hires
Whybin\TBWA\TEQUILA has announced today a further two new senior creative hires for the Sydney office; Asheen Naidu and Daryl Corps, who join the team as Creative Heads.
Asheen Naidu’s 14-year career has taken him through high profile agencies in South Africa, Singapore, New York and most recently, The Campaign Palace in Sydney where he was Deputy Creative Director. His work has won numerous awards including five Cannes Lions and an ADC Gold.
Daryl Corps has arrived fresh from London where he started his career with AMV BBDO and was quickly promoted to the board at just 26 years old. From there, he founded the Creative hot shop Lunar BBDO, AMV’s sister agency before joining Anomaly London in 2009. He’s been in D&AD Annual 20 times and was on the Black Pencil Jury in 2010.
Since the beginning of 2011 the Whybin\TBWA\TEQUILA creative department, under the leadership of Matty Burton and Dave Bowman, has undergone a rapid expansion in order to resource several more recent large client wins including IAG brands.
A total of 11 new creative staff from a variety of backgrounds and skill sets have started this year with the specific intention of expanding not only the department’s capacity, but also its range of capabilities across digital, shopper marketing, PR, promotions, direct and traditional advertising.
2011 creative hires at Whybin\TBWA\TEQUILA in Sydney include:
Asheen Naidu - Creative Head
Daryl Corps - Creative Head
Gavin McLeod - Creative Director
Julia Elton-Bott - Art Director
Jol Temple - Copywriter
Peter Galmes - Creative Head
John McKelvey - Creative Head
James Ross-Edwards - Copywriter
Derek Anderson - Art Director
Dean Hamilton - Senior Writer
Hannes Ciatti - Art Director
Dave Bowman, joint Executive Creative Director, said of the recent hires, “We’ve got a lot of very senior talent under one roof now and each brings with them their own range of unique experiences and skills. As a result, we’re in a lot of spaces most agencies simply aren’t right now and that’s exciting for us. It also feels great to look around the department and feel intimidated by the creatives here.”
Bowman added, “TBWA knows the importance of creative strength. The TBWA global creative leadership includes industry greats like Lee Clow and John Hunt. As a consequence, TBWA is one of the world’s most creative and innovative companies, a Top-Ten consolidated agency network in the world, and was also named ‘Best International Network of the Decade’ in 2010 by Advertising Age.”
