BMF bolsters creative team with two new hires

BMF has boosted its creative team with the hiring of Doug Hamilton and Casey Schweikert as creative director and associate creative director, respectively.

Hamilton has worked at agencies such as Droga 5 New York, Anomaly, BBH Singapore, and TBWA Sydney, while Schweikert spent four years in New York at R/GA and BBG.

The role sees her return to Sydney, where she previously had stints at DDB and Banjo advertising from 2011-2012.

“As Australia’s most effective creative agency, there are no better hires than Doug and Casey,” said the agency’s chief creative officer, Alex Derwin.

“They both bring a powerful combination of international pedigree and local expertise, and they’ve already started to push our thinking into some really interesting spaces. Most importantly, they fit with the culture of the place – they’re talented, smart, humble and nice.”

Hamilton, who was freelancing before joining BMF and has worked with clients such as Google, Under Armour, Covergirl, and Budweiser, said: “BMF turns out such consistently excellent and effective work, I’m chuffed and humbled to help Alex and the team push for even greater heights. From day one I’ve felt welcome and at home. I can’t wait to hit the ground sprinting.”

Schweiker worked on campaigns for Playstation, Amazon, Planned Parenthood, Seamless, Verizon and JBL while in New York, and added: “I’ve always been a fan of BMF and the work they’ve done, so I’m very excited to join the team. Lots of great creative opportunities to get stuck into with an awesome bunch of people.”
