Changes rumoured

nzcreativecircle has heard word of a couple of unconfirmed career-changing agency events - one involving quite a few redundancies and the other a pending merger which has been predicted by others on this blog recently. We will tell you when we know for sure.

Any tips as always to faxheidi@gmail.com

I hear TBWA/Whybin are merging with Clio/Oneshow, D&AD, Media HK, and just about every other award show on the planet.

Sorry story for Saatchi, Colenso, DDB and Mojo.

See you in The Gunn Report next year. Or, maybe not.

One rumour has it that it will not be the JWT/AdWorks merger.

However, I think it might be Grey merging with someone else within their holding company.

Grey currently are still leaderless. Hywell is in charge, whichever agency they may merge with, the CD must be shitting bricks.

Hack vs Hywell? I think it's an away win.

Snap, that's what I heard.
Boy, Josh and Jamie heading to the leper colony at
Singo's eh? If you liked the awkward merger that was Y&R vs. Generator, you're gonna love this.

Hmmm, I heard that as well but find it very hard to believe. Who the hell in their right mind would want to work under Greg Partington? L&P's next campaign would involve the Briscoes lady as a cross promotion.

Why? why why? MTC is a nice agency. Don't sell out boys. Adworks is the bottom of the heap.

"Who the hell in their right mind would want to work under Greg Partington?" Having had the misfortune to briefly meet the guy, I'll second that.

Couldn't agree more about Partington. I haven't met anyone who has a good word about him.

Hmm, I've noticed there are many experts here on Greg. OK, so he's a hard taskmaster.. right?. But he has a chef that comes in every morning and cooks Scones and Muffins for the staff, The kitchen has 2 fridges full of beer, wine and fruit juice available to the staff. There is free secure car parking available to the staff 24/7. And he purchased a holiday Bach up north (costal property) for the staff to use whenever they want! Yup, you guys are a sad bunch, (I don’t work there anymore, but my partner does).
