To drive their new and existing services forward, Chimney Singapore has recruited Brand Spanking New Zealand’s Mark Pickering for a new role as Creative Strategist and Business Director for APAC.
Mark brings award-winning skills in marketing and creative strategy to his new role where he will be tasked with developing new and existing client relationships as well as formulating new digital content concepts and delivering effective strategy to engage audiences.
His career has seen him work at agencies across a number of markets, including Australasia, the UK and Ireland, where he began his role as Creative Strategist with agencies FCB Inferno, BD-Network, Brightspace Media, The House and Hey Human, before moving to New Zealand in 2006.
Over the past 12 years as Creative Strategist and Director, Mark built one of the most successful and progressive experiential agencies in the APAC region—Fluxx: Ideas in Motion, which merged with Brand Spanking three years later to form NZ’s largest agency in the field.
Mark also sat as chair of the Commercial Communication Council of NZ’s PR, Experiential and Social Media Committee (PRESCOM), working with other leading agencies to educate and grow these marketing channels.
