M&C Saatchi Auckland CD, Rob Jack is set to leave this week to go freelance just two months after Oliver Maisey joined the agency from FCB. At the time, the plan appeared to be to leave Rob Jack as CD of Auckland while Maisey would be in a National role with plans to beef up the fledgling Wellington office. However, with the loss of the NZ Tourism business, it appears the agency is not big enough to have two CDs.
Says Jack: "Over the last four months I've really enjoyed getting back into writing ads, through necessity. I've realised that, at this point in time, creating campaigns and strategies gives me more fulfillment than management. So I'm looking forward to writing some ads."
Jack joined M&C Saatchi a year ago from DDB Auckland (where he had been in a senior creative role for a year after being lured from London).
In London he worked at Simons Palmer, BBH and BMPDDB, and has won a swag of awards, including five D&AD silvers (four for Guess Jeans and one for Dial-a-Cab), one Cannes gold (VW Passat 'Driving Test'), one silver (VW Passat 'Dog'), two One show bronzes, three British TV silvers, AWARD Bronze (VW Touareg 'Surprise Nature') and teo Axis Silvers for VW Golf print campaign.

Rob is the one of the very best natural born creatives there is in this industry. His long list of awards, his unique commitment to the big idea and his selfless disposition to nurture talent, all contribute to make any agency extremely lucky to have him around and any client very fortunate to have Rob on their side. Having had the opportunity to work with him at DDB and BBH London I can only wish him the very best.
