Creative Director @JWT

Hired on the spot by Ben du Plessis (no relation) to oversee the Nokia account. The short-lived period at JWT ended due to a policy of not having siblings in senior positions within the same company.

Creative Director @BBDO PentaMark

Jun 2001 - Aug 2008

Chrysler Jeep Dodge. My involvement on the account was very hands on and extensive. I liaised with clients on every level personally and vetted each piece of work personally. I was invited to work on international campaigns out of Detroit on two separate occasions and fielded a relocation job offer to work in Detroit twice. This was a through-the-line account and I played in every pond. Loved every minute of it - especially the highly successful customer events called Camp Jeep.
