IKONOMOU TAKES OVER FROM PATTERSON AT BCM BRISBANE
BCM Brisbane has appointed Nick Ikonomou as creative director, taking over the reins from BCM's long standing CD Greville Patterson, who after 9 years, has decided to move toward a 4 day a week role with the agency.
Ikonomou (pictured) has most recently been the senior writer at De Pasquale, and prior to that worked at BCM and DDB. Also joining BCM’s creative team is Andy Iles, who was previously Head of Art at De Pasquale. Iles has recently moved to Brisbane from London via Sydney where he worked in senior creative roles at Publicis Mojo, the Engine Room, DDB, Leo Burnett and Oil. Iles will work closely with Ikonomou as Art Director.
BCM Partner Paul Cornwell praised the outstanding work and contribution that Patterson has made in the role of CD: "Grev is an outstanding creative with an enormous gift for the business. He has worked tirelessly for almost a decade and in that time has been responsible for some of the most effective and creative campaigns in the Queensland market.
"Nick is one of the top creatives in the industry and we know he will bring a great deal of talent, enthusiasm and drive to the role. The added bonus is that we know Nick well as he worked with us previously. Grev's decision has made us think seriously about the way in which we want to evolve our creative department."
