MUNTZ TO DEPART GPY&R TO TAKE CD POST AT WPP SHOP
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.
