Full-service NZ talent agency The Pond has is welcoming a new senior talent agent to their team, Will Gregory. He began his professional life as a graphic designer converted to an account manager, using his real talent for bringing people together, getting the best out of clients, and making creative stuff happen.

“I have a contagious energy that gives me the power to excite people, find out what motivates them, and get them to buy into a new concept or now, a new role,” he says. “It was that realisation that prompted me to hang up the boots in advertising and make my foray into recruitment.

“I’m looking forward to applying that energy towards building new relationships between clients and our represented talent, developing new lines of business, and contributing to growth in the creative and digital sector.

The Pond is the largest freelance and fulltime recruiter in the New Zealand marketing and communications sector, representing more than 400 live professionals working across 40 creative and digital occupations at any one time.

Gregory joins The Pond from a key account management role at Studio Alexander, where he handled accounts ranging from the British Council to Downer Construction. Prior to that he successfully handled the marketing communications for key accounts like AIG, Coca Cola Amatil, DB Breweries, Yates and Harcourts.

He recognises that today’s educated, savvy, and competitive market demands uniquely creative people and he’s keen to fuel clients with the best creative and digital talent currently represented by The Pond, and returning newbies to NZ.
