Joining the suite of fresh faces is the talented Pritchard from Charles Sturt University. Pritchard has previously worked for the Australia Radio Network, the Boiler Room and Gorilla Communication, where he worked on clients such as Four Seasons condoms.
Grant and Millist are the newest additions to the BWM creative team. Grant has a background in film and TV production and previously worked at Momentum, whilst Millist comes from the latest batch of 2013 AWARD School Graduates.
Says Rob Belgiovane, chief creative officer: “With BWM continuing to win new business, these five new hires will play an integral role in ensuring our business continues to expand, with new ideas that thrill, engage and surprise and get Australian’s talking in 2014. Andrew, Nick, Zac, Fee and Sam are all powerhouses of creativity, and are a very welcome addition to the BWM creative clan.”
