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.

NSPCC :: Outsourcing Management

Whilst at Saatchis and Saatchis I assisted the above-the-line creative’s to extend their award winning campaign against cruelty to children onto the web as an interactive game. Liaised with both the animation production company and a Kiev-based development partner to get the project started and built a working flash demonstration illustrating the way the code should be implemented.
