Philip O’Neill to head WHYBIN\TBWA Melbourne

There must be better water over there for Earl Grey tea.

Continuing the recent trend of New Zealanders taking up key positions
in the Australian advertising business, Whybin\TBWA announced today
that Philip O’Neill, currently General Manager of Whybin\TBWA New
Zealand, will assume the role of Managing Director, Whybin\TBWA

“Philip is an outstanding advertising man, and in the short time he’s
been with the group he has demonstrated that he has what it takes to
lead our Melbourne office. Increasingly we are operating as one brand
across three offices reflecting the importance of Australasia to our
clients”, said David Walden, CEO Whybin\TBWA New Zealand.

Prior to joining Whybin\TBWA last year, O’Neill was Managing Director
of M&C Saatchi New Zealand.

Greg Partington - CEO of the year?? Huh, I remember when he told everyone in a meeting that he made an male employee cry, and that you shouldn't cry cos' it was bad for staff morale.
