Digital/data/customer experience agency WiTH Collective Linked by Isobar  has announced the appointment of John Marshall to lead its New Zealand office in the role of client services director.

Marshall joins WiTH Collective (part of the DAN empire) following the August launch of its Auckland office, and will work closely with ANZ ceo Justin Hind and general manager Adam Parsons to lead the ASB account and drive the agency’s presence in New Zealand.

A New Zealand native, Marshall joins from Ogilvy & Mather Sydney where he has worked for brands such Lion, Coca-Cola, Nestle, Vodafone and Google. His work has been recognised at Cannes and in AdWeek, Mumbrella, Ads of the World, B&T and a raft of other TV, film and creative award shows.

Most recently, he won the Australian Advertising & Design Award at B&T’s 30 Under 30.

“John will be a great leader for our New Zealand team.”

WiTH Collective founder/ceo Justin Hind said: “We’ve been on a long search to find the perfect leader. John has had a lot of success in Australia with some of the country’s biggest brands and has the right level of passion, hunger and skill-set that aligns perfectly with our vision of providing business strategy and creative, through to customer experience and optimisation.

“He will be a great leader for our New Zealand team.”

John Marshall said: “The opportunity to not only join the WiTH Collective team, but to be able to lead and extend their innovative offering to the market in New Zealand is an exciting one.

“Add in the chance to work on a brand like ASB and it makes the decision to move back home an easy one for me. I can’t wait.”

Marshall’s role is effective immediately.
