“Scott is highly regarded in the Australian market as someone who continually surpasses challenging expectations.

He will work closely with group teams at creative agency Joy and social pioneers Amplified to push client campaigns across a diverse range of media assets.”

He has a wealth of experience both in Australia and overseas. Since beginning his career at DDB in the early 90’s, he has led accounts for international corporations like Hyundai, McDonald’s, Wrigley’s, CBA, LloydsTSB, and Foxtel.

Scott said: “Razor has proven itself as both a leader and innovator in the Australian marketing space. It’s a dynamic time for our industry and I look forward to coupling my passion, knowledge and experience with Razor’s progressive thinking to help shift the agency into the new media age.”
