Clemenger BBDO Sydney executive creative director Paul Nagy has handed in his notice and will leave the creative agency in early 2017.
Nagy has been ECD at Clems Sydney for the past five years, overseeing recent campaigns including Dolmio’s Pepper Hacker, Whiskas Castacam and MasterFoods Make Dinnertime Matter. He was also instrumental in setting up Clems creative consultancy TKT Sydney.
Prior to that, Nagy was creative director at Clems in New Zealand and has won several awards during his career, including a swag of Cannes Lions, Spikes and Effies for work on Skittles, Virgin, Hungry Jack's and more.
“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," Nagy said. “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.”
Clemenger Group executive chairman Robert Morgan described Nagy as "a fantastic creative leader and a brilliant person".
His exit will be a blow for Clemenger, but the agency aims to have a new ECD lined up by the end of the year. It follows the departure of Darren Spiller, DDB ECD, earlier this month.
