Saatchi & Saatchi has appointed Teresa Harris to the role of senior strategist, completing its new planning line up.
Harris joins from Proximity London where she spent two years as Planning Director.
Murray Streets, Saatchi & Saatchi Director of Strategy, says the move finalises the agency’s new line-up of strategists and follows the appointment of consumer specialist Debby Giness in December last year. Giness’s background includes more than five years experience as a consumer researcher at Ideaction and Colmar Brunton.
“Teresa’s appointment is another fantastic boost for the new planning team. We now have five strategists who are dedicated to seeing the world through the eyes of New Zealanders at a time when rapidly changing technologies offer fresh opportunities for people to connect with each other and share their stories,” Streets says.
A Kiwi, Teresa has spent the last eight years in the United Kingdom working across a number of service brands such as InterContinental Group hotels and Royal Mail developing through the line communication strategies and digital communications.
“She decided to return to New Zealand late last year and we've been lucky enough to now persuade her to join the Telecom team. She confesses to having an obsession with SMEs and digital communications, both of which make her exceptionally well placed to work in the telecommunications space,” Streets says.

Now we have to hear about planners round here too. Does the self-obsession ever end? Defnitely not just Saatchi guilty on this one either. ONE or two others come to mind much faster - surprised we haven't heard about their planners too. And their Studio Managers. And their Accounts Clerks. And reception. Everything. But please, not the suits too.

I really like the way the circle is centred in the square. You don't notice the lack of focus so much.

9.00 am - probably a long time - Telecom are happy with the work Rapp are doing, and in fact Rapp are picking up work that Saatchi's can't get right.

Well, as long as Rapp Collins, whoever the fuck they are, manages to punctuate properly, and put question marks at the end of questions, I think they'll be just fine. Don't you?

yes 6.36. I'm sure Rapp are just inundated with hundreds of jobs that Saatchi's 'can't get right'. Spoken like someone from Rapp for sure.

a word of warning 6.36 - when you start doing some Saatchi's work they will get you for sure - just look at what happened to Lavendar...

So Telecom mobiles don't work anywhere other than in New Zealand or, um, Botswana. Got a plan for that?
