Awarded creative team Hilary Badger and Rob Beamish are about to depart Grey Worldwide Melbourne to George Patterson Y&R Melbourne -- the first of a new breed of creative people and direction for the "Big Ad" agency, according to ECD James McGrath.
Badger, who did Dulux "Ghost" (MADC Best of Show and AWARD Silver), Mars "Earth" (ATV Best of Show) and Grosby "Spider" (Cannes Bronze) joined Grey only a few months back after departing Clemenger BBDO, Melbourne to partner Beamish (also her boyfriend).
Says Grey ECD Ant Shannon: "Hillary and her boyfriend Rob wanted the opportunity to work together and Grey gave them that. I think this hiring gave us a quick bit of P.R. and sent out a signal that Grey was aggressive, in more than just at a new business level. It’s annoying when other agencies make offers to our staff, but then again I would be more worried if we weren’t rated. We will be employing more creative talent in the future to add to our already strong department, making sure we dominate in Melbourne.
"As we have seen lately our creative work has begun to get recognised internationally, and I can assure everyone of an exciting ride into the future."

Right, now I get it.

One copywriter's position was made redundant because he was being replaced by two copywriters.

Well… that all seems to be above board then.

I think it's quite strange that nobody has picked up on the fact that over 90 people have either been retrenched or left voluntarily since the Y&R takeover.

They're apparently absolutely disgusting to work for.

"Awarded creative team" ??? What have these two done together that's been awarded?

It's a tale of two McGrath's. One is very good. One is a cunt. I'll leave it you to guess which is which.

I can not think of anything worst than working with the missus. Ah, working for GPY&R, perhaps.

I'd rather see my missus in a German scat film than work for Matt.
