George Patterson Y&R Melbourne senior creative Richard Muntz (pictured) is leaving the agency to become a creative director - within the WPP network. Where to no one is saying - in Melbourne, WPP owns JWT, Badjar Ogilvy and The Campaign Palace, so take your pick.
"We are thrilled for Richard. It is a fantastic opportunity and we wish him the very best of luck,” said GPY&R Melbourne managing director Russel Howcroft.
Howcroft pointed out that recent signings had significantly strengthened the GPY&R Creative Department: "Former Clemenger BBDO Sydney team Ant Hatton and Robbie Brammall, Simon Bagnasco from Publicis Mojo Melbourne and Chris Northam who relocated from the GPY&R Sydney office, have boosted the agency’s already considerable creative resources."
Muntz, who, together with Tom Martin, won a Promo Lion at Cannes this year for Cricket Australia 'Big Warnie', is currently on leave and had not returned CB's call prior to blogtime.

What about Coulson? He's still the creative grunt at Patts. Must be something brewing there.

If you think WPP is bad try the JWT Australia WPP/STW combo. Your arse will hurt like never before.

Isn't Coulson too busy bumping every chick in sight to be a creative power?

On a related note the Patts team at Clems are about to attempt the next big budget beer tvc. This time repositiong Pure Blonde for chicks based around a "Pure" feminine type fantasy land where the beer is made (I was told think Honda Diesel tvc) which is rudely interuped by a bogan who arrives in the pick up truck to take delivery of the beer.

Apperntly involves a mega junket for agency and crew to Prague or somewhere in eastern europe for the shoot. It's not so much about the concept so long as it's "Big". Sounds more like it sink without trace like the latest Toohey's efeore - what was that for again?

Good Luck Muntzy. JWT is a tough shop. If you can make it there you can make it anywhere.
