OGILVY WELLINGTON APPOINTS SCOTT HENDERSON AS CREATIVE DIRECTOR

Ogilvy Wellington has appointed Scott Henderson Creative Director, who is joining from from Clemenger BBDO where he held the position of Senior Art Director for five years.
Says Ogilvy Wellington Managing Director, Livia Esterhazy: “We’re excited to get a creative of Scott’s talent on board. His book is stunning, with impressive work for clients such as Land Transport New Zealand, ACC and numerous consumer brands. We have big plans for our agency in Wellington and Scott is going to be a key part of these.”
Henderson began his advertising career at The Campaign Palace, Sydney in 1998 after completing a journalism/production degree and working as a studio artist and designer. The following year he moved to JWT where he worked for several years producing awarded work on some of Australia’s leading FMCG brands before leaving to freelance with creative shop, Host. He joined Clemenger BBDO Wellington as a senior art director in 2002. Over the years Scott has worked on a diverse range of consumer brands across FMCG, telecommunications, banking, electronics, automotive, pharmaceutical, tourism and media. He gained extensive experience in social marketing through his work for Land Transport New Zealand, Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC), Surf Lifesaving NZ, Ministry of Civil Defence, Ministry of Justice and Amnesty International.
His work has been consistently recognized at local and international award shows including Cannes, D&AD, One Show, Clio, AWARD, Effies and Axis, for creativity, craft and effectiveness.
Says Henderson: “To be part of a new Ogilvy agency in Wellington and to shape the creative product and culture is a fantastic opportunity for me. Ogilvy has a long history of producing great artwork both internationally and in NZ. The recent results at AWARD and the Effies just confirm this. Bring on 2008!”
