As a result of continued growth, OMD and its specialist business units are leaving the College Hill offices that have been home for more than a decade to move to a newly renovated space at the city end of Mt Eden. Coinciding with the move has been the appointment of two more senior staff. (scroll down)
“The move not only enables the growing team to be all together on the one floor but gives staff an architecturally designed, creative work environment,” says OMD ceo Kath Watson.
“The new office is built around the company’s core values with environmentally friendly solar panels on the roof, breakout collaborative work spaces and a new timber deck that is destined to become more legendary than College Hill,” she said.
Total Media, which has shared the College Hill premises for the last five years will also move to a new location, joining Dynamo at 80 Greys Avenue. “This move provides an opportunity for both OMG Group companies to leverage complementary talent with an increased focus on strategy and innovation, while keeping clients at the heart of their business,” Watson said.
Drew De Santis’ role as Dynamo GM will expand across both brands. And, after four years as Total Media GM, Natasha Le Marinel is now moving up to a new group leadership role as group business development director across the wider OMD group agencies and specialist brands.
“This is an exciting time for our group of businesses,” Watson said. “Continued growth across the board provides us the opportunity to give all our staff a better working environment and more opportunity for collaboration across our agency brands and specialist experiential, digital and data units.”
OMD will be in the new space at Level 1, Eden 3, 14-18 Normanby Road, Mt Eden from Monday 27 July. Total Media will move to 80 Greys Avenue on the same day.
New York-based Omnicom Group owns OMD, BBDO, DDB Worldwide, TBWA Worldwide, OMD, Proximity Worldwide, Rapp, PHD Worldwide and Total Media NZ.
