AUCKLAND, Today: Saatchi & Saatchi New Zealand has announced the departure of chief creative officer Toby Talbot. He has been with the agency since 2017 and will be leaving at the end of the March for a new role in Europe in a bid to be closer to family.

A global search for his replacement is already underway with an announcement on his successor to be made shortly. 

MD Paul Wilson said, “While it will be sad to say goodbye to my good friend and creative partner, I completely understand Toby’s desire to be nearer to his family.

“He leaves the agency in good hands. We’ve got a strong group of creative leaders in Corey, Kristal and Jordan, some great new talent and a reinvigorated creative department.

“Thanks for everything, Saatchi.”

“We wish him all the best and thank him for his contribution.”

Talbot said: “It’s with a heavy heart that I say goodbye to the incredible Saatchi whanau, but the truth is, my wife Jo and I have wanted to be closer to our daughters and family in the UK for some time.

“I’m proud of the agency I’m leaving behind. I will miss our clients, our inclusive culture and of course, the name on the door.

The agenecy mantra ‘Nothing is Impossible’ has always been, and will always be, a great inspiration to me.

“Thanks for everything Saatchi.”
