Only days after Omnicom Group bought a majority stake in independent creative agency 180 Amsterdam, Kiwi expat Andy Fackrell, 180's joint ECD (with Aussie expat Richard Bullock), is taking a month off in New Zealand, starting this weekend.
180 has shared the Adidas account with Omnicom-owned TBWA\Worldwide since 2002, and last month Sony Electronics America appointed 180 and another Omnicom agency, BBDO, to its $56m account. 180 also counts Motorola, General Motors and Amstel among its clients.
The agency was founded in 1998 and has been a staple on the international awards scene, picking up numerous awards at Cannes and D&AD, among others. It recently announced it is to open a Los Angeles office, its first international outpost, next year to handle the Sony business.
180 is managed by founders Alex Melvin, Guy Hayward and Chris Mendola, along with Peter Cline, managing partner, together with NZ Fackrell and Aussie expat Richard Bullock, executive creative directors.
