JWT SYDNEY CONFIRMS HUNTER APPOINTMENT
JWT Sydney has finally confirmed the appointment of Mick Hunter (pictured) as Creative director and Ian Morton as head of art, as well as announcing that Kate Walker will be the agency's general manager, reporting to JWT Australia and NZ managing director Mike Connaghan.
Walker has been with JWT since April 2004 and was initially appointed to head up the Vodafone business.
Hunter and Morton will join from Whybin TBWA Sydney at the end of the year after finishing several major projects. He has been CD at Whybins for only a year, after a decade as senior writer at The Campaign Palace, Sydney.
At The Palace he was responsible for such highly acclaimed campaigns as
the Westpac “Athlete’s Parents” Olympic campaign and the “Red Meat. Feel Good” campaign which won the 2003 Gold Pinnacle at the AFA Effectiveness Awards.
Says JWT Worldwide Chief Creative Officer Craig Davis: “JWT is constantly looking for people who’ve done great work. But, while their track record proves their expertise, their orientation needs to be more about the future than the past. They also need to be really good human beings. Mick and Ian fit the bill perfectly”.
Says Hunter: “It’s great to be on the ground floor of something that’s got such great potential”.
