DDB AUCKLAND APPOINTS MORTENSEN DEPUTY CD
Gerald Mortensen has been appointed deputy creative director at DDB NZ.
Says DDB creative director, Paul Catmur: "Gerald has been with us for 18 months and his creative leadership, particularly with McDonald's has helped us enormously through the exciting times we're having.
"He's a loud and likeable guy and gets on with just about everyone from clients to barmen. It has been invaluable to have such an ally as we try to do as much great work as we can across all our clients. He doesn't shirk from the challenging jobs and for an American he demonstrates quite a grasp of the intricacies of the ruck and maul."
