Saatchi & Saatchi :: Technical Director

I was contracted by Saatchi and Saatchi’s in London to direct them in ‘bringing Digital to the heart of the agency’ after the demise of Saatchi Interactive. It was my responsibility to run all London-based Digital work, brainstorm with the creative’s (mainly with the global creative director), assist the Head of Operations’ in sorting process, scope and Digital project management. I was also responsible for building a scalable supply network of third party companies that Saatchi’s could utilise on specific Digital projects, recruiting both freelancers and permanent staff and vetting all client pitches from a creative and technical perspective. The London-based work I oversaw included Visa, T-Mobile, Atlantis, Starbucks, Cadburys, NSPCC, Axa, General Mills, the Marine Stewardship Council and the rebuilding of Saatchis website.

Axa :: Technical Project Management

Whilst at Saatchi and Saatchi I was responsible for overseeing a TV Campaign’s conversion to online. This included working with the creative’s to maximise the sourced material from the existing commercial’s footage. I was also responsible for raising numerous concerns about impossible creative treatments that were about to be pitched to the client.
