George Patterson Y&R Melbourne digital team expands on back of new wins with seven new hires

gpyrdigi3[2].jpgGeorge Patterson Y&R Melbourne continues to grow its expertise on the back of a string of new business wins including Schweppes digital, Heinz, NBN and South Australian Tourism.

Oliver Woods has been appointed as digital strategist and comes from Vocanic, one of Asia's largest social media agencies where he worked across strategies for Johnnie Walker, Mercedes-Benz, StarHub, Norton and various Singaporean Government agencies.
Harry Wray has been appointed digital account director, joining from Visual Jazz where she worked across Jetstar, JB Hi-Fi, Coles and Target.
 
Prue Chilcott joins in the newly created digital media and communications manager role, coming from a social media and brand management background at realestate.com.au and Coles.
 
Joe Sibley and Psembi Kinstan also join the new line up as art director and copywriter, after successful work on campaigns for Foxtel, Mazda, GE, The Salvation Army and Village Roadshow.
 
And finally, finishing the new line up are Billy Chang and Brett Harris, who join a burgeoning GPY&R Melbourne Digital team now exceeding 50 staff.
 
Says Matt Farrugia, director of digital: "This growth is reflective of George Patterson Y&R's shift from an advertising agency into one that is truly multi disciplinary. Our recent success at Cannes, particularly in Digital, is testament to the quality of work coming out of the agency."
