New Hires at Y&R New Zealand

Y&R NZ is happy to announce several new Auckland creative agency hires:

Kate Murchison joins as Senior Account Director. Something of a marketing polymath, Kate has an agency background in both suiting and design, and comes to us fresh from two and a half years as national marketing manager for Flight Centre. Kate will lead the account service team on our new client Westfield.

Natalie van Beurden joins as Senior Traffic Manager. Natalie returns home to New Zealand following five years abroad in creative services roles at The Campaign Palace and Wunderman in Sydney. Natalie will bring us a new level of operational discipline and cat herding.

Annabelle Reynolds joins as Senior Account Manager. With a background in media, digital and agency account service, Annabelle brings 8 years of varied experience to our suit team. Annabelle will work with Kate Murchison on Westfield.

Dan Mortensen joins as Studio Designer. Dan returns home following three years in the UK in both agency and client side graphic design posts. Dan will bring his passion for brand consistency and creative solutions to the Westfield team.

We are also delighted to announce the promotion of four brilliant young interns into permanent roles within the group:

Cameron Putt joins the creative department as Intermediate Creative on our fashion team.
