PROCTER TAKES CREATIVE DIRECTOR ROLE AT CUMMINS


Former Clemenger BBDO Melbourne creative James Procter has been appointed creative director of cummins&partners Melbourne.
His appointment comes as agency principal Sean Cummins concentrates on the roles of CEO and national creative director with the Brisbane office growing at a rapid rate.
Says Cummins: “James is one clever writer who was last year's surprise packet at Cannes, picking up a Lion and a couple of finalists. But unlike a lot of creative people, James has an ambition to add more skills to his repertoire. Running a creative department is the ultimate challenge.”
Procter, who has worked at cummins&partners for a year before the promotion said “I know it’s a little clichéd but I truly believe it is an exciting time to be in advertising. Clients no longer want just a TV ad and a still for print but are now looking for media blind ideas that hit their consumer in new and innovative ways. We have a great creative department capable of delivering ads that will please clients, consumers and hopefully a couple of juries.”

There will be a meeting of ex creative directors of cummins&partners and others offered the CD role, to be held at the MCG.

It's the only venue big enough.

And just when you think the blog cleans up its act....to 2:09 and 3:58...if you worked with me you would know differently. And at last count over our ten years I have had 2 annointed creative directors. One was a team, the other an individual. Three people aint a lot for the size of our business. as for total control...man I dont even have total control.next time leave your names or remain forever gutless. And worse..ill informed
