That followed five years as digital art director at Whybin TBWA where he worked on a brands in a variety of sectors such as Nissan, Playstation, Red Bull, VISA and NRMA.
M&C Saatchi executive creative director Ben Welsh said: “Both Glenn and Chris bring special creative smarts, perspective and experience to the table.
“Their work is second to none. We couldn’t be more excited about having them on board.”
Cheeseman said: “I was excited about M&C Saatchi’s commitment to innovation and ideas that stretch beyond traditional media plans.
“With some of the largest, most prolific brands on their books, I see real opportunity to do break-through work.”
Christensen said: “After 18 months at a purely digital shop it’s great to be back in an integrated agency, especially one with a huge innovation skew to accommodate new ideas for our clients.”
