Mark Harricks, former ECD at JWT and current chairman of AWARD, has joined independent Sydney agency The Works as creative partner, starting immediately.

Harricks resigned from JWT in February this year following three years with the agency and was replaced by Simon Langley.

He joins The Works as the fifth creative partner alongside Damian Pincus, Kevin Macmillan, Douglas Nicol and Paul Swann.

Damian Pincus, founder and creative partner at The Works said in a statement: “Mark has an outstanding creative pedigree whose record speaks for itself. He consistently produces highly creative and effective work for clients and is a genuine creative on the forefront who fits in with our no bullshit and ambitious culture.

“We’re delighted that he has joined us as we embark on our next phase of growth. The past couple of years have seen us win more business and industry recognition than ever before and with Mark as a senior creative leader we look forward to that continuing.”

The Works’ clients include Woolworths Everyday Rewards, Tetley, Keno, Michelle Bridges, Jim Beam Australasia and global, Canadian Club and Australian Capital Tourism.

In 2012, The Works made creative director Kevin MacNamara redundant citing its “Creatives on the Forefront” structure where creative partners oversee creative leads.
