Bajzert joins The Works after a period of freelancing and prior to that as creative director at global brand activation agency G2. He has also worked at Euro RSCG KLP in London as well as Wunderman and George Patterson Bates in Sydney and is experienced in direct, digital, shopper marketing and sales promotion on brands including Procter & Gamble, Ikea, Vodafone, Bankwest and Ford.

The role has been newly created following a series of new business wins over the past 12months including Sunbeam, Keno, Tetley and NRMA Group.

Gray has over 12 years experience gained at some of New Zealand’s most regarded agencies including Colenso BBDO. She has extensive experience in big brand, digital and social and was group account director at creative hotshop Josh& Jamie which was sold to STW’s Assignment Group in 2011.

The new appointments follow the addition of Andy Pilkington as creative strategy director in February this year.

Kevin Macmillan creative partner and co-founder of The Works said: “We’re an ambitious agency looking for ambitious talent and Leo and Jo are definitely that. They are experienced professionals that have both worked at big agencies delivering for their clients and will be great additions to The Works as we continue to grow.”
