New recruits at Boys+Girls

After a successful year and new client wins in 2019, we needed to bring in some new boys and girls to keep things ticking over and lead the way into 2020. Enter Jack, Beth and Orla. 

Jack joins Boys+Girls working across a range of clients with a focus on Three. A graduate of The University of Auckland with a B.A. in History and Art History in 2010, he has spent the last seven years at DDB in his native New Zealand. While there, he worked across a roster of the country’s biggest and most iconic brands including Westpac, BMW, MINI, ExxonMobil, Volkswagen, McDonald’s, Steinlager and Sky TV. Prior to that he dabbled in media, and even sold fine art and classic motorcycles – a true Renaissance man.

Reflecting his passion for creativity and effectiveness, he’s a multi-award winner including two Gold Effie’s for the Re:scam campaign at the 2019 Asia Pacific Effie Awards, as well as five Gold Effie’s and Most Effective Client of the Year for Netsafe in New Zealand (helping the agency to be named the fifth most effective in the world last year). Jack has worked across numerous advertising disciplines, from Account Planning to heading up Digital and Cultural strategy, including Account Service and social copywriting.  

Beth also joins us from far afield – she recently returned home to her native Dublin from a stint working in London and Sydney. During her time in London, she worked in the content agency Seven, working on the Sainsbury’s account, and later spent time in Havas London. After four and a half years in London, Beth moved to Sydney and worked on the Westfield account (the large retail destinations in Australia and New Zealand). At Boys+Girls, Beth will lend her expertise to a range of high-profile accounts ensuring best-in-class delivery for her clients.

Orla is a graduate of Advertising & Marketing from the slightly less exotic Institute of Technology Tallaght and subsequently worked in Chemistry for three years, with a focus on the Dunnes Stores and Irish Examiner accounts. At Boys+Girls, Orla will join a team focused on delivering some of the most imaginative advertising in Ireland.
