Saatchi & Saatchi Australia has announced the hire of Aussie expat Sesh Moodley to the new role of deputy executive creative director.

Moodley joins the creative agency’s Sydney office after five years in the US, most recently as executive creative director at Victors & Spoils Boulder.

Prior to that, Moodley worked as creative director at Crispin Porter + Bogusky for three years, focusing on the growth of key business across Miami and Boulder.

As deputy executive creative director at Saatchi & Saatchi Sydney, Moodley will oversee all brands and creative product.

He will report to Mike Spirkovski, who has been promoted from executive creative director to the newly-created position of national chief creative officer.

Michael Rebelo, CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi’s Australian and New Zealand operations, said it was a natural decision to promote Spirkovski.

“He has been the creative partner every CEO wishes for – a fine leader of our creative department, and a top partner and friend to our clients and the agency team,” Rebelo said.

“The great thing about Mike, even though he has achieved so much for Saatchi & Saatchi, is that his ambition is boundless.”

Spirkovski said it was a privilege and an honour to take up the new role.

“I’m really proud of what we have achieved as an agency over the past few years, and now with a strong deputy like Sesh in place, I know we will strive for even greater things,” he said.

“I’ve known Sesh since our days at Leo Burnett in the mid-2000s. He’s a prolific creative thinker who’s always on the edge of finding change and ways to grow and do better work.

“Sesh has developed into an inspiring leader, one that we are lucky to have as part of the Saatchi team.”

Commenting on his new role, Moodley said: “I’ve always been a big fan of Saatchi & Saatchi Sydney and their game-changing ideas for big brands. I couldn’t be more stoked to be back home for this role working with Mike and the team.

“What also excites me is the opportunity to help lead the agency’s creative efforts for some of Australia’s most iconic brands. I can’t wait to get stuck in and live up to their ‘Nothing is Impossible’ spirit.”
