Brisbane independent creative agency, Nick Did This, has welcomed some extra smarts to the team this week with the addition of Rich Boland as business director.
Most recently at Clemenger Brisbane, Boland has worked both agency and client-side throughout his career as everything from marketing director to managing director, and brings a unique perspective to the agency.
Says Nick Pritchard, agency founder, Nick Did This: “Rich and I worked together many years ago at Mojo. We’ve been great friends since then and I’ve always been equally in awe of his skill and terrified by how hard he makes me think. We’re beyond ecstatic to have him on board.”
Boland, meanwhile, is looking forward to the new challenge: “This is the first independent agency I’ve ever worked at. Nick and the team really get it. They get people first. And they’re incredibly passionate. They hate being merely satisfied. Because their passion is to be better, to imagine a better tomorrow. Passion so strong it ignites others. Inspires clients and the market. And frightens the competition. I’m excited to be a part of a team that has such passion for work, clients and each other.”
Starting this month, Boland has hit the ground running – with the only sticking point being his refusal to pose for an agency photo.
Says Boland: “Anyone who knows me knows I avoid cameras like the plague. Unfortunately that didn’t put the Nick team off so they have come up with their own way to represent me via illustration. At least I’ll never age.”
