Following an earlier report on the CB Blog, former Publicis Singapore creative director Rodd Chant has indeed been appointed executive creative director of FCB New York. Aussie expat Chant, who made his creative rep at McCann-Erickson Sydney in the mid nineties, was back home in Sydney for a short break earlier in the year after resigning from Publicis Singapore late last year, where he had been for little over a year. At the time he would only confirm to CB he had a big gig lined up overseas. The FCB New York office is a biggie, with around 100 staffers in the creative department, so it will be by far Chant's biggest challenge yet.

This was posted in an earlier Rodd thread, but the McCanns of the Nineties was quite the training ground.

Ned McNeillage and Linda Knight went from there to Weidens. Noah Regan went from there to Saatchi. Sam Begg went from there to Clems. Jamie Kwong and Paul Kamzelas went from there to a hot agency in New York whose name escapes me. Tom Ormes went to some hot Asian gig. And now Rodd in NY.

Not bad for the McCannery as Lynchy used to call it.

It's nice when ageing creatives shoot themselves in high contrast, drop off the background, throw in a '92 ear hoop, grade in 9 colour B&W and somehow still manage to look a few years older than they actually are. A photoshop job is imperative before posting on the CBB (Campaign Brief Blog or Cunts Bitching & Bollocking). What say you girlies?

Great to see yet another Aussie advertising person getting a gig in the US of A - Rod Chant getting a job suggests there is still hope for Maaarcus and Monty.

Rodd Chant's a top bloke. But I think he is a hack. Can't remember any good work he produced at McCann and I worked there with him. I'll give him 3 months over in NY before he moves back to Sydney and starts Born Again.

2.49 If you can't project your tone through the words you write you're a f*cken moron. No wonder so many ads are so shit in this country...cos of cunts like you. And I bet you know just one language. Pathetic. Do youself (and others) a favor and get an education.

Nah, I'm just a crap hack like the rest of us. Done nothing in particular. No aspirations at all really, other than to earn enough money to blow on blow and bimbos.
