M&C SAATCHI SYDNEY SNARES TOP PLANNER FROM DDB NYC
M&C Saatchi Sydney has finalised its new-look planning department with the appointment of Claudia David to the position of planning director.
David, who has been DDB director, brand strategy for DDB for four years in New York and more recently in New Zealand, will head a department that recently hired its first channel planner, Ian Czencz, and is the biggest since the agency launched.
“Claudia is one of our most exciting appointments and her brilliant experience across the world, literally, at agencies like TBWA and DDB internationally will bring a wealth of knowledge to our clients.
“We have been quietly building the department and our two other senior planner appointments made late last year, with Ian and Colin Jowell, along with our existing planners mean that we enter 2007 with a fantastic team” said M&C Saatchi executive chairman Asia Pacific Tom Dery.
German-born David will start at the agency in just over a month.
