AJF Partnership snares multi-talented Scott Walker for executive creative director role

AJF Partnership has appointed Scott Walker as executive creative director, bringing significant value to AJF and its clients, as well as the wider GrowthOps group, through his global experience, creative thinking and extensive network.

 

During a career spanning more than 30 years, Walker has worked in advertising, TV broadcast, fashion, and film production, gaining big brand experience in a multitude of channels and disciplines.

Working around the globe as a regional executive creative director, Walker has been integral in merging and shaping agencies for large networks such as DDB UK and the Dentsu Aegis Network in Europe, as well as guiding agencies to win agency and network of the year in Asia and Europe for their creative work.

Walker has won numerous international awards, including Cannes, D&AD, One Show, Clio, Caples, The MCCA Best Awards, Campaign BIG, DMAs and AWARD, as well as winning a prestigious ASTRA for his work in Australian Television.

As ECD at AJF, Walker will lead its creative department, developing the overall creative direction for client brands, while inspiring and leading the AJF team to deliver effective and memorable creative that respects and connects with consumers.

Says Con Frantzeskos, managing director, AJF: “Over 17 years, AJF has built a reputation as one of the best and most effective creative agencies in Australia. Our global ECD search sought a person who could build on, enhance and modernise that creative offering.

“In Scott, I believe we’ve found a leader, a brilliant thinker and someone who has clear ideas on how a modern advertising agency should operate. I am excited he is joining us on this journey.”

Says Walker: “I’m delighted to join such a solid and future-facing brand as AJF, and to partner with an inspirational team to help lead the agency to further and broader success for it and its clients.

“While continuing to capitalise on its foundational successes, AJF’s vision for the future, and desire to broaden its scope, is hugely exciting for me to be part of and lead creatively.

“I also feel privileged to be part of the GrowthOps network and the visionary group of businesses and people that sit within its fold.

“Returning to Australia after 14 years working across all four corners of the globe, it’s nice to finally find an agency to call home that truly has a worldly vision but plays locally, and plays very well indeed.”
