RODD MARTIN HEADS TO SAATCHI WELLINGTON


Saatchi & Saatchi Wellington have bolstered their senior creative resources with the full-time appointment of Rodd Martin as associate creative director and head of art. Martin’s extensive CV includes previous stints at Saatchi's Sydney, as well as creative director roles at The Campaign Palace Melbourne and Omon New York. More recently, Martin was a founding principal of Brandhouse Arnold (now The Furnace) with offices in Melbourne and Sydney, and has enjoyed considerable success as a TVC director, a skill the agency will utilise. He has won numerous awards throughout his career, including Cannes, One Show, Clio, and seven AWARD pencils.
“Rodd had a freelance stint with us over a couple of months last year and quickly made himself indispensable,” said creative director Tim Hall, also an expat Aussie. “Not only does he come with a vast array of creative and business skills, but his personality and passion for great ideas make him a natural for this agency. Everyone here is thrilled to have him aboard.”
Says Martin: “Saatchi & Saatchi Wellington is going through a kind of re-birth at the moment. There’s a lot of momentum here and more and more it feels like the cheeky child it used to be.”
