After a four month search, Sydney-based digital agency The Farm has hired former Ogilvy and Saatchi & Saatchi creative Michael Menzies as creative director.
Menzies will work on brands including Johnson & Johnson, Sara Lee, Moccona, The Wiggles, Hoyts, The Smith Family and Taubmans.
He joins after almost four years running his own agency, Audacity Creative, and is to work full time at his new agency.
Menzies replaces Wade Kuhn who left in June after a four-year spell to join Facebook’s global creative solutions team as a creative strategist.
Hamilton Jones, The Farm’s MD, said: “It’s great getting hold of such talent, we’re in a great place at the moment and the opportunities are flying thick and fast. It’s key for us to get people who are not only great at their jobs but share the same love of what we do and Michael is going to be a great addition to help push our thinking.”
Menzies’ career includes permanent and freelance roles at Razor, Amnesia Razorship, Tribal DDB, Lavender, Tequila, Ward 6, Publicis Mojo, MercerBell, The Monkeys, Host, Saatchi & Saatchi, Ogilvy, Modem Media and Ford.
