Rory Mckechnie returns to DDB New Zealand from Droga5 NY to fill creative director role

Rory.jpgDDB New Zealand has hired a familiar face, with Rory Mckechnie returning to the agency as creative director.

Mckechnie, who previously enjoyed a five-year stint at DDB, has rejoined the agency after spending time in New York at Droga5 as a senior creative.

He picked up more than 60 local and international awards during his last stint at DDB, and has been involved with some standout campaigns during his tenure at Droga5, including The Ripple for Chase.

Mckechnie says he's excited to be back at Greys Ave after working for one of New York's top creative agencies: "DDB has always held a place in my heart, so the opportunity to return home with such an incredible experience under my belt is fantastic and I'm looking forward to producing more great work with the team here."
DDB NZ's chief creative officer Damon Stapleton, says Mckechnie's return brings invaluable experience to the agency.

Stapleton said: "We're thrilled to have enticed Rory back home. Rory's work prior to leaving was really outstanding and having him head overseas was on one hand a shame for us but on the other was an amazing opportunity that he had to pursue."
