to Executive Creative Directors

27 May 2020

FCB creative duo Peter Vegas and Leisa Wall have been promoted to joint Executive Creative Directors of FCB New Zealand. This follows an impressive track record of client success which included their promotion in February 2019 to Creative Directors.

This move will now see them provide creative leadership across the whole of FCB NZ’s client portfolio.

Commenting on the promotions, CEO Paul Shale said, I am thrilled that Leisa Wall and Peter Vegas agreed to be our co-Creative Leads. Leisa and Vegas are a formidable powerhouse who now have a mandate to make an immense difference to FCB NZ. They’re without ego, hungry for great work, and dedicated to taking our clients and people to the next level”.

Both Pete and Leisa have worked on a multitude of stand out campaigns during their time at FCB, including Cannes Lion winning campaigns for SPCA NZ: ‘Driving Dogs’ and ‘Go Balls Out’ for the Testicular Cancer Foundation and most recently the hugely popular Mercury ‘The Great Escape’ featuring Evie, the electric classic car.

Speaking on behalf of the creative pair, Wall said, “Vegas and I are very conscious of the extra responsibility that comes with adding an E to the front of our titles. But we’re excited about the challenges that this post-Covid environment is creating for the industry. We’re looking forward to continuing the great work and culture that Tony Clewett helped create in the agency, just with slightly better hair styles”.

Shale concluded, “Pete and Leisa are individually talented but also a true team, two sides of one coin. They’ve already made an enormous difference to the culture of the agency and how we work together to deliver the omnichannel creativity that will drive outstanding results for our clients.”
