A highly-experienced creative with more than 25 years’ experience, Nobay will work alongside Managing Director Russ Vine and General Manager Jane Young in his new role. As part of his remit, Nobay will work across all of Ogilvy’s Brisbane clients providing senior creative guidance.
“Phil not only has outstanding experience and creative talent, but a clear understanding of how creative, strategy and media can and should work together for the benefit of clients,” said Ogilvy Australia CEO David Fox. “We’re excited to have him not only join the growing Brisbane office, but the broader Ogilvy Australia team which is focussed on further developing the benefits of our integrated model.”
