CB reported this prior to Christmas but now it's official: Publicis Mojo, Auckland has added international creative heavyweight Andy Amadeo to its line up of world class creative talent.
Amadeo has been the creative director at Lowe Howards Spink, CDP and Mustoes in London, and has also been art director at Chiat Day, DMB&B and Simon Palmer.
Amadeo, acknowledged as one of the top art directors in the world, is an international multi award winner with a clutch of Gold and Silver Awards to his credit for clients including Stella Artois (including the 2000 Print Cannes Grand Prix), Nike and Smirnoff.
Nick Worthington, executive creative director of Publicis Mojo New Zealand, says the company has a vision of being world class and the appointment of Amadeo reflects its ability to attract the very best creative talent from New Zealand and around the world.
Amadeo says he has long admired New Zealand as a centre of creative excellence: “The opportunity to work with Nick Worthington and his extremely talented creative team at Publicis Mojo New Zealand was one which I found irresistible.”

Start the clock. I'll give him 10 months before he goes home for 'family reasons'.

He very well might, but it's amazing how many imports have ended up staying longer in NZ. Catmur, O'Sullivan, Talbot, Maddocks, Rohrback, McPherson, Cheesman. Newer imports like Nick Worthington and Rob Jack have been there a couple of years now and both probably will never go back to London.

Andy is a world class talent. Whether he stays for less than ten months is irrelevant. Hats off to Nick Worthington for getting him over there in the first place. In saying that, who wouldn't want to work for Nick!
