CHESS MOVES: POUNARTZIS, KIM (AND MORE) JOIN BWM



Three months into the creative director's role at Belgiovane Williams Mackay Sydney, Luke Chess has made a significant round of new hires. Writer Yanni Pounartzis (pictured top), ex The Campaign Palace and Leo Burnett, has agreed to take a full time Creative Group Head role, after spending the last few weeks at BWM in a freelance capacity. And art director Derrick Kim (pictured left) has been tempted back from BBDO Singapore, to partner writer Damian Fitzgerald.
Says Chess: "Yanni and Derrick are both challenging thinkers who can generate campaignable ideas across a range of different media. That makes them pretty hot property creatively, and we at BWM are pleased to have snaffled them both.
"In fact Derrick's award record, including Cannes Gold and AWARD Silver, would be the envy of many more experienced creatives."
Chess adds that ex-Whybins junior team James Blow and Mike De Tullio will join BWM from next Monday: "They'll help bring even more fresh ideas to the table," adds Chess. "And
that means even better creative for BWM and our clients."

Fresh ideas to the Foosball table as well.

Go Mike!

Hey Yanni, I know you read the blog - so good luck mate... I hope you find what you're looking for at BWM but I have my doubts... I know you didn't find it at The Palace. Guess you're finally free of 3 though huh? R
