Saatchi & Saatchi Wellington has been awarded Contact Energy’s direct, digital, brand and retail advertising business after a three way creative and credential shoot out.
Says Pattrick Smellie, Contact Energy Manager, Brand Strategy: “Saatchi impressed us with the scale of their thinking, their creative firepower and their passion for our business.”
Says new Saatchi & Saatchi Wellington Creative Director, Tim Hall (pictured): "this is a fantastic start for Cameron and me. I’m particularly pleased for the Saatchis Wellington staff. They are all passionate Saatchis people. This came through in the pitch and I know I speak for all of them when I say we can’t wait to get stuck into Contact and the challenges ahead.”
Cameron Harland, General Manager of Saatchi & Saatchi Wellington says the agency is excited to be chosen to help Contact deliver its brand and retail strategies: “It is big news for the Wellington agency. Tim and I are clear about what we want to achieve in Wellington and it’s very much about delivering brilliant thinking and creative to our current clients and growing the agency through wins just like this."

Just got the Fastline version of the release. I wonder which monkey was responsible for throwing that piece of shite together? Whoever it was obviously didn't bother to get it proof read, coz it's a bloody mess.

Ah, virulent pedantry is so gratifying...

Do Saatchi do direct or just ads on envelopes? Seems strange to put all this work together or was it simply a case of they wanted a Wellington based agency and had no place else to turn to given other agencies connections.
