Campaign Brief Magazine : CBNAT SEPT 2018
2 CAMPAIGN BRIEF SEPTEMBER 2018 FOR THE RECORD CAMPAIGNBRIEFREVIEW ALL THE CREATIVE NEWS THAT FITS DAILY NEWS @ THE CB BLOG CAMPAIGNBRIEF.COM EMAIL HOTLINE MICHAEL@CAMPAIGNBRIEF.COM Host/Havas chief creative officer Darren Spiller departed the agency after 18 months. Spiller was the agency's first chief creative officer. Spiller joined Host/Havas last year, two months after departing his role as DDB Melbourne CCO. Spiller joined DDB Melbourne in 2012 as ECD, replacing Grant Rutherford, and was promoted to CCO in February 2015, a move which saw a major creative restruc- ture for the agency. During his time at DDB Melbourne, the agency enjoyed a creative resurgence, developing high-profile work for Westpac, Devondale and RSL amongst others. Prior to joining DDB Melbourne, Spiller held the role of CCO at Fallon USA, moving to Minneapolis in June 2009. Before Fallon, he was regional creative director of Publicis Mojo Australia and New Zealand. Says Spiller: “We are approaching the first birthday for Host/Havas and by any measure, it’s been an excellent 12 months. It was always my intention to help deliver the successful integration of Host and Havas Sydney before stepping aside to allow others to take it forward. The agency is in the shape of its life, so now feels like the right time for that to happen. The ECDs are incredibly talented and more than capable of taking the reins, and I wish them all the very best.” Host/Havas has received a long list of creative accolades this year, most notably for the Palau Pledge campaign. It was AWARD Agency of the Year in May and also the recipient of a Black Pencil at D&AD and three Grand Prix at Cannes Lions, including the Titanium Grand Prix. Spiller’s role will not be replaced with his duties being shared amongst the agency's executive cre- ative directors, Seamus Higgins, Ant Melder and Jon Austin. Says Anthony Freedman, chair- man, Havas Group: “I would like to thank Darren for his passion, com- mitment and creativity and wish him every success in whatever adventures lie ahead.” With regards to future roles, Spiller advised that his first priority was to enjoy some well-deserved quality time with his family in Victoria but would be advising of his future plans in due course.
