JOSH MOORE REPLACES SION SCOTT-WILSON AS LOWE AUCKLAND CD
Josh Moore (above), who has been Head of Art at Lowe Auckland for the past nine months, has been appointed creative director, replacing Sion Scott-Wilson (below), who has left to "finish writing a book and pursue other business interests".
Moore is ranked 6th in the current Creative Rankings League Table for Australasia published by Campaign Brief and is a founding member of the innovative CAANZ group ‘The Kitchen Table’.
Says Lowe Auckland CEO, Stephen Pearson: "We have made a number of major key hires in the past 12 months. These include Jenny Stiles as Head of Planning, Cameron Harland as Lowe GM, and Jackie Clark as Head of TV production. Hiring Josh Moore as Head of Art along with his creative partner James Hurman has also been a key part of this overall Lowe re-invention. Putting a brilliant young leader in charge of the creative department is a sign of confidence in his talent and our desire to have Lowe creatively prominent in the market.
"Sion Scott-Wilson, who has been creative director for the past 18 months, has done good work in leading the Lowe creative product. He has decided to make a change so he can finish writing a book and pursue other business interests. We wish him well in making that shift.”
Before Lowe, Moore did senior creative stints at Saatchi and Publicis Mojo. Scott-Wilson was formerly CD of Saatchi & Saatchi, Singapore and before that deputy CD at Leo Burnett, Sydney.
