Clemenger BBDO, Sydney executive CD Paul Nagy set to depart after 10 years with the group

Nagydeparts.jpgAfter 10 years with the Clemenger Group, executive creative director Paul Nagy has resigned from Clemenger BBDO Sydney and is set to depart in early 2017.

Nagy has been ECD in Sydney for 5 years, following a successful 5 years at Clemenger BBDO Wellington.

Says Robert Morgan, executive chairman, Clemenger Group: "I would like to thank Paul for a huge contribution to our company both here and in New Zealand. He is a fantastic creative leader and a brilliant person. We wish him the very best in the future."

Nagy has been responsible for highly award-winning work throughout his decade at Clemenger, including campaign for NZ Road Safety, Hungry Jack's, Campbells and most recently Dolmio 'Pepper Hacker', Whiskas 'Catstacam' and Masterfoods 'Make Dinnertime Matter'.

Under Nagy's leadership Clemenger BBDO Sydney has been named AdNews NSW Agency of the Year, won B&T Campaign of the year, as well as being recognised at Cannes, D&AD, Webby's, AWARD and numerous other award shows.
He has also been instrumental as ECD in the success of Clemenger's newest agency TKT, which currently services Campbell Arnott's and Frucor.

Says Nagy: "I'm immensely proud of what the agency has achieved in my time here and I'm humbled to have been able to work with, and learn from, some of the most talented and generous people in the industry, on both sides of the Tasman. I leave behind very close friends who I know will go on to do great things, and no one will be cheering louder than I."

Says Andy Pontin, CEO, Clemnger BBDO, Sydney: "It's been a rollercoaster 5 years for the industry and the agency, and throughout it all Paul has been a wonderful partner. He's simply one of the best and nicest blokes in advertising."

Nagy will finish at Clemenger in early 2017. Clemenger BBDO Sydney will announce a replacement in due course.

Hats off said:

Have to say, Clems Sydney had always been in the unenviable position of being Clems Melbourne's ugly little sister but under Nagy they've done exceptionally well.

Any other agency in Sydney with that record would be pretty stoked.

Be interesting to see where he ends up. Have enjoyed a lot of the work.
