Nagy has been at the helm of the Sydney agency for five years after moving from New Zealand, where he led creative at Clemenger BBDO in Wellington for five years.

Recent work over-seen by Nagy includes the Dolmio Pepper Hacker and Whiskas’ Catstacam campaign.

It is understood that Nagy will be taking a break from the industry after revealing his plans internally earlier this year.

Clemenger has launched its hunt for a replacement, with Clemenger Sydney CEO, Andy Pontin, telling Mumbrella he hoped to have a new ECD confirmed before the end of the year.

Clemenger Group executive chairman, Robert Morgan, said Nagy had made a huge contribution to the group over the past decade.

“I would like to thank Paul for a huge contribution to our company both here and in New Zealand,” Morgan said.

“He is a fantastic, creative leader and a brilliant person.”

Along with overseeing the creative output of the agency, Nagy also played a key role setting up TKT which services Campbell’s, Arnott’s and Frucor.

Nagy said he is sad to leave the agency.

“I’m immensely proud of what the agency has achieved in my time here and I’m humbled to have been able to work with, and learn from, some of the most talented people in the industry, on both sides of the Tasman,” Nagy said.
