Indie Agency Appoints Ex-Y&R ECD Andrew Thompson To Creative Director Role

Independent Brisbane-based agency Brother & Co have appointed former Y&R ECD Andrew Thompson to the role of Creative Director.

Thompson joins Brother after a two-year stint client-side working for companies such as Youi Insurance and McMillan Shakespeare Group.

Piet Human, Co-Founder and ECD of Brother, commented: “Clients want more access to the people who can make a meaningful difference to their business and, to us, that means more experienced people in the room. To be able to have someone of Thommo’s calibre step into that position is hugely exciting.”

Thompson is also excited to be back working agency-side: “I’ve picked up a whole lot of new knowledge from my time client-side. I have a greater understanding of the challenges clients face on a daily basis and am keen to put what I’ve learnt into practice with Brother’s growing client list. Most clients love to deal directly with the thinkers on their business and Brother’s structure is totally geared towards that.”

In his time as Joint ECD at Y&R Brisbane, Thompson helped the agency win BADC Best of Show five times running and picked up shiny trophies from every major award show. He was also instrumental in maintaining long-standing client relationships with Suncorp, the Queensland Government, Queensland Health and TAFE Queensland.
