MATCHETT TO RETURN TO ECD OF OGILVY AUSTRALIA
Bruce Matchett, currently chief creative officer of JWT India, is returning mid year to Sydney, to take up the executive CD role at Ogilvy Australia.
Matchett has been at JWT India - based in Mumbai, in charge of around 250 creatives across five cities - since September 2005. He was hired by JWT worldwide CD, Australian Craig Davis, who had been a long time admirer of Matchett, a Scot, who was the award-winning CD of Ogilvy & Mather Auckland prior to transferring to O&M Sydney a decade ago. Shortly after he arrived in Australia, JSA merged with O&M and Matchett became national CD of SO&M, even though it meant giving up entering award shows. He was at SO&M until 2004 when he stepped up to a group creative role at STW.
