KING/SHIRTCLIFFE STORY CONFIRMED


This morning's NZCC story has now been confirmed: Dave King (pictured) will take on the Creative Director role at AIM Proximity Auckland, as Matt Shirtcliffe becomes ECD of Proximity Canada....

AIM Proximity today announced it has appointed Dave King, one of the leading creative minds in the global direct marketing industry. Mr King will become Creative Director at AIM Proximity Auckland, replacing Matt Shirtcliffe who will take up the position of Executive Creative Director for Toronto-based Proximity Canada.
Darryn Melrose, CEO of AIM Proximity, comments: “We’re replacing one heavy hitter with another. I am delighted that we have attracted one of New Zealand’s greatest exports back to AIM Proximity. Dave King has been the architect of many award winning campaigns overseas and he is a major factor behind the success of Sydney-based M&C Saatchi Direct, which, along with AIM Proximity, was ranked in the top 10 agencies worldwide by the prestigious Won Report.” (M&C Saatchi Direct Sydney was ranked #2 - NZCC).
“We’re obviously sorry to see Matt Shirtcliffe leave us, but I am pleased he’s staying in the global Proximity network, and I’m sure he’ll be back. I’d like to take this opportunity to both congratulate and thank him for his outstanding contribution at AIM Proximity over the last four years as well as the inspiring role he has played in the direct marketing industry in New Zealand. We wish him and his family all the very best in Canada,” says Melrose.

Dave's a good bastard. And Gav's a good prick as well, even though he's a dirty shirt-pulling yarpie.

Well done both of you.

Hey Jello

Haven't heard from you in a little while, and I've missed your, um, gentle observations. So.. how've you been?
