TALBOT MAKES HIS FIRST HIRING: LURES BOUGNERES BACK TO NZ


Toby Talbot has made his first hiring since starting as ECD of DDB New Zealand two weeks ago.
He has lured the very talented French art director, Emmanuel Bougneres (pictured), back to New Zealand after six months working in Germany, latterly at Jung Von Matt.
“I’m delighted to have Emmmanuel join DDB,” says Talbot. “I’ve got big plans for this department. Emmanuel is a great starting point. He made quite an impact when he was here before. He’s the kind of person who will thrive in the DDB culture. As well as being one of the best art directors around, he’s a nice guy too – for a Frenchman”.
Prior to moving to Germany, Emmanuel enjoyed three years at Publicis Mojo in Auckland, where he won some major awards, including a Gold Lion for Amnesty International last year and Silver Award pencils for his Mini Burger Rings campaign the year before. He spent his formative years working under Eric Vervroegen at TBWA Paris.
Says Emmanuel: “I met Toby about 3 years ago, when he was still working as CD at Colenso, but we just missed the chance to work together at that time. I was always impressed by Toby's work and passion for the advertising industry, and thought it would be great for us to one day work together. When I got the call from Toby, I started packing immediately! The opportunity for me at DDB is fantastic, and it was not possible to miss it again.”
Bougneres starts at DDB on 1st April.
