Work history

Currently

Executive Creative Director

Www.mattbatten.co.uk

Jun 2015
  • I am a highly experienced creative leader who has helped agencies grow their business, develop their creative offering and win awards. My work, and that I coax from my teams, is truly multi-channel with an obvious bias toward amplification through digital and technology. I am now looking for a new opportunity with an advertising or digital agency.

2015

ECD & CCO

Wunderman UK

Dec 2012 - May 2015
  • I creatively led the agency from a 3-year loss to sustained profit, beating targets for the first time in years, and re-engineered the creative offering to win more awards in 2014 than in the previous 4 years combined, as well as an Agency of the Year nomination.

2012

ECD

Wunderman Australia

Nov 2008 - Dec 2012
  • Under my creative leadership, Wunderman Sydney became the fastest growing and most financially successful business within Y&R Group Australia, was ranked 8th for growth in the global network and No.1 for creativity with more awards than any other market.

2008

Group Creative Director

Saatchi Saatchi Australia

Mar 2007 - Jul 2008
  • I helped the award-winning ATL agency be recognised as an integrated agency by connecting mainstream advertising with response and digital marketing across major brands.

2007

Senior Art Director

BMF Australia

Nov 2001 - Mar 2007
  • Up-an-coming independent agency BMF hired me to expand their highly creative ATL advertising into a fully integrated offering. As a result, BMF grew to become one of Australia's most successful agencies with multiple Agency of the Year titles.

2001

Art Director

Saatchi Saatchi Australia

Jun 2000 - Nov 2001
  • After ranking in the Top 10 students in AWARD School, Saatchi & Saatchi promoted me from a studio role to the creative department. Within months, I collected my first handful of trophies.
