Enigma Acquires Creative Agency Disciple

The internationally-awarded creative agency Disciple has been acquired by Enigma, one of Australia’s largest independent agencies.

Starting with Enigma today, Disciple founders and long-time creative partners Peter Buckley (right in photo) and Tim Brown (left) are responsible for some of Australia’s favourite advertising campaigns including Tooheys, Hilux, Subaru, Sunrice, Toyota and Olympus.

Enigma founder Lisa Sutton Gardner said the agency was on a determined growth path and had been looking to strengthen its ranks to provide existing and new clients with a powerhouse creative offering.

“Pete and Tim are a highly awarded team, but more impressive to Enigma is that their work demonstrates a genuine connection with every Australian, and that is what Enigma is about,” Sutton said.

“We are proud to work with clients all over the country in both metropolitan and regional centres and the Disciple team is a natural extension of who we are and what we do.

“Enigma has enjoyed significant growth in the past few years and we attribute this to our strong connection to Australia’s heartland and our no-nonsense approach to growing our clients’ success. Pete and Tim share this approach and bring an incredible pedigree of great thinking that moves the needle.”

Following the acquisition by Enigma, Buckley and Brown will now take on executive creative eirector roles at the agency that has offices in Surry Hills and Newcastle.

Tim Brown said Enigma was a great Australian agency with a unique offering. “Enigma is strong in both regional and metro markets. They have an insight into the hearts and minds of real Australia like nobody else,” Brown said.
