McCann Sydney snares creative team Jonathon Shannon and Long Truong from Holler Australia

Jono & Long.jpgMcCann Sydney has appointed award winning creative team copywriter Jonathon "Jono" Shannon (left) and art director Long Truong (right), to work under ECD Jerker Fagerström and CD Marcus Tesoriero.
 
Shannon and Truong bring with them extensive digital experience and a focus on problem solving that will help push McCann's creative offering.

Says Fagerström: "We're thrilled to have Jono and Long on board. Their strong digital background and ability to get to the heart of an insight will be real assets to our clients; they're exactly the type of creatives we need to continue to build our agency's profile."
During their two-year partnership at Holler Australia, Shannon and Truong were recognised at One Show, Spikes Asia, and the Epica Awards for Audi R8 Blink and Blackmores Mindful Ocean, and also picked up a win in the D&AD Brand Storytelling competition.
 
Says Tesoriero: "Jono and Long will be a great fit for our new creative offering here at McCann. I'm looking forward to collaborating with them to craft a new era of innovative work for our clients."
 
Shannon and Truong have worked across digital and integrated campaigns for Audi, Blackmores, Heineken, Fox Sports, Pizza Hut, and Nestlé. They join McCann ready to hit the ground running.
 
Says Truong: "There's a real drive to do great work here at McCann. After talking with Jerker and Marcus about their vision for the agency, we knew that we had to get involved."
 
Shannon agrees: "We couldn't ask for a better opportunity to take our work to the next level. Both Long and I are excited to be part of such a killer creative department...and we're also looking forward to smoking the lot of them at table tennis."
 
Shannon and Truong join a department that's made several exciting new hires over the past six months, among them creative team Fernando Luz (art director) and Will Halstead (copywriter), who finished 1st and 3rd respectively at AWARD School last year.
