FCB NZ promotes creative duo Peter Vegas and Leisa Wall to executive creative directors; Tony Clewett departs after CCO position dis-established
FCB creative duo Peter Vegas and Leisa Wall have been promoted to joint executive creative directors of FCB New Zealand. The move follows the departure of Tony Clewett after the position of Chief Creative Officer was dis-established.
This move will now see them provide creative leadership across the whole of FCB NZ’s client portfolio.
Says Paul Shale, CEO, FCB NZ: “I am thrilled that Leisa Wall and Peter Vegas agreed to be our co-Creative Leads. Leisa and Vegas are a formidable powerhouse who now have a mandate to make an immense difference to FCB NZ. They’re without ego, hungry for great work, and dedicated to taking our clients and people to the next level.”
Both Vegas and Wall have worked on a multitude of stand out campaigns during their time at FCB, including Cannes Lion winning campaigns for SPCA NZ: ‘Driving Dogs’ and ‘Go Balls Out’ for the Testicular Cancer Foundation and most recently the hugely popular Mercury ‘The Great Escape’ featuring Evie, the electric classic car.
Speaking on behalf of the creative pair, Wall said: “Vegas and I very conscious of the extra responsibility that comes with adding an E to the front of our titles. But we’re excited about the challenges that this post Covid environment is creating for the industry. We’re looking forward to continuing the great work and culture that Tony Clewett helped create in the agency, just with slightly better hair styles.”
Says Shale: “Pete and Leisa are individually talented but also a true team, two sides of one coin. They’ve already made an enormous difference to the culture of the agency and how we work together to deliver the omnichannel creativity that will drive outstanding results for our clients.”
