CHESS BOARDS BWM AS CD


After seven years as an award winning senior writer at Saatchi & Saatchi, Sydney, CB hears Luke Chess has been lured to BWM Sydney as creative director, with a place on the management board, effective late January. CB understands current CD Adam Hunt will remain at the agency, and will be CD on some of the agency's accounts. (More details on the appointment is expected in mid January, when the trade press come back from their break.)
Meanwhile, Saatchi & Saatchi ECD David Nobay says he will be looking to replace Chess (who had been partnered with Vince Lagana) with a high profile creative in the near future. Says Nobay: "It's a great new challenge for Luke, and one I know he's going to nail. While it's sad to see him go, I know it's the right move for him too."

Congrats Lukie!!! Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Sad to see the team of Vinnie and Luke will be no longer, but you will kick ass...and being in Ultimo is just that little bit closer to home...

Well done!

Luke, you rock. Congrats. Best eyebrows in the business. Are you going to have to height adjust everything when you're in Belgiovane's office?

Good news Luke. Best of luck mate.

And judging by Nobby's comments it sounds like good news for Saatchi's and Vinnie as well.

Everyone wins.

Congrats.

Great stuff Luke.

All the best big fella you'll go great.

I'm also guessing that you will be 'vain' enough to read these additional comments - if not I'll pop on by to congratulate you in person!!).

Nice work Chess.
A long way from the beer sodden carpet of Fort St and your short lived, but ruthless reign as the hairiest lead guitar player in the Inner West.
Keep it real.

boy is this is a bad PR shot.

Is this really the best photo or has Luke picked it because he is holding a silver Lion?

Don't know you luke, but congrats anyway. You'll definitely look better standing next to Rob!
