SHANE GIBSON TO JOIN BMF AS ASSOCIATE CREATIVE DIRECTOR
After more than seven years abroad, Shane Gibson is returning to Australia to join BMF as Associate Creative Director, effective March 20.
On the move, Gibson said: “I’m very excited to be coming home, particularly to BMF. I have long admired Warren’s work and more recently that of the agency. In addition to the creative offering, I was particularly attracted to their independence and with that the agency culture. In every way, it just felt like a good fit. Their recent growth and the B&T Agency of the Year title were further confirmation of BMF being the right choice.”
Says BMF Executive Creative Director, Warren Brown: “I’m thrilled to have Shane join BMF. He brings with him a ton of experience at the highest level and his ‘head space’ fits perfectly with the direction the agency is taking. Shane will be a brilliant addition to the team and he’ll be given plenty of opportunity to continue his outstanding career. He’ll be partnered at BMF with highly awarded writer Dennis Koutoulogenis”.
Gibson most recently held the posts of deputy creative director at M&C Saatchi London and creative director of M&C Saatchi Singapore. As head of art to CD Matt Eastwood, he helped found M&C Saatchi's Melbourne office in the late 90s.
Along with numerous creative accolades, Gibson has contributed to many Agency of the Year titles including those from AdNews, B&T, Campaign Brief, Advertising Age Asian Agency of the Year, Advertising Age Global Agency of the Year, and M&M Agency of the Year. In 2004, the Gunn Report noted his creative work for British Airways as the second most awarded media campaign in the world.
