“I’m genuinely excited to join 72andSunny and help the rest of the team here…” – Micah Walker
Great news for Australia. Micah Walker will return to Australia to join 72andSunny Sydney as Executive Creative Director. He will partner with the current leadership team consisting of Mollie Hill, Director of Strategy; Ngaio McCreadie, Director of Operations and Talent; Chris Kay, Partner and Managing Director, APAC; and Johnny Tan, Executive Creative Director, APAC.
“In a business that’s all about people, we could not be more excited about having an extraordinary talent and leader like Micah to be a part of our team. His experience in Australia and the US, as well as his unique care for the work will help inspire truly disruptive work in this office,” said Johnny Tan.
Micah joins from Wieden + Kennedy Portland where he served as Creative Director for the past four and a half years, leading key clients such as Samsung, Dodge Chrysler, Booking.com and TurboTax.
“We had a brief to find someone, who with the rest of the gang, could help us deliver on our creative ambition in Sydney. We wanted someone who had the perfect mix of local knowledge and a truly global track record, as well as having a wry wit and a good dose of mischief,” said Chris Kay. “Micah was the only person we could find who would fit that bill, so we are pretty stoked he has decided to jump on board.”
Prior to Wieden + Kennedy, Micah served as Executive Creative Director at Sydney agencies including: The Monkeys, Mojo and Leo Burnett, and helped produce some of Australia’s most unique and memorable work. He was also previously a Creative Director and Partner at Fallon London, for four years, during the agency’s storied, creative run.
“Almost five years ago, my family and I left for an adventure in Portland. As much as I loved W+K and the people there, not a day went by that we didn’t miss Australia. We’re stoked to be back home, close to family and good mates. And I’m genuinely excited to join 72andSunny and help the rest of the team here build something different and special” said Micah Walker.
