Rob Belgiovane, chief creative officer, said in a statement: “With BWM continuing to win new business, these five new hires will play an integral role in ensuring our business continues to expand, with new ideas that thrill, engage and surprise and get Australian’s talking in 2014.”

The agency has also selected a trio of junior talent, including Zac Pritchard who joins as a copywriter having previously worked for the Australia Radio Network, the Boiler Room and Gorilla Communication, where he worked on clients such as Four Seasons condoms.

Sam Grant joins as a junior art director coming from a background in film and TV production, joining from Momentum and Fee Millist joins the agency as a junior creative copywriter and is a 2013 graduate of the AWARD School.

“Andrew, Nick, Zac, Fee and Sam are all powerhouses of creativity, and are a very welcome addition to the BWM creative clan,” Belgiovane said.

The five new hires join a relatively new team of creatives who joined BWM this past year including creative directors Tom Manion, Kevin Macnamara and Sean Lavery as well as digital creatives Adam Gustella and Tom Hartney.
