A big congratulations to Brigid Alkema on becoming the first ever Kiwi woman to be appointed to the legendary global BBDO creative board. MadDaily.com reports that, simultaneously, Clemenger BBDO New Zealand has promoted her to chief creative officer.
Clemenger Group NZ chief executive Strahan Wallis said Brigid's promotion and appointments came off the back of many years of creative leadership from Brigid.
“This is very rare global recognition for an amazing Kiwi creative leader from an amazing little agency at the bottom of the world...This news reflects the global mana that Brigid already carries."
Clemenger BBDO MD Brett Hoskin said that over the past five years Brigid had "fostered a community of brilliant creative brains..."
He went on to say that, “Brigid leads from the front and gets her hands dirty, tirelessly pursuing work that makes an impact. She has well and truly earned this title and appointment.”
BBDO, one of the world’s most creative companies, has 15,000 people in 289 agencies across 81 countries.
