The Directors:

Jason Buckley - Finance Director -

Jason Buckley did �I-do� to �get fit� with partner Morwenna Farwagi to lose weight for the big day and the rest of their lives together, the wedding was on the 5th of December 2003.

Mark Collis - National Creative Director -
Mark has more than 28 years experience starting as junior copywriter with Ogilvy & Mather and moving on to major international agencies such as Young & Rubicam, Grey, Davidson Pierce, BMP, D'Arcy, George Patterson (he was Executive Creative Director) spanning Australia, Hong Kong and London where he spent 14 years. Before joining Leo Burnett, he was running his own consultancy. He has worked on major brands including Stolichnya, Findus, Holsten Pils, Smiths, Panasonic and NSW Tourism.

Tim Castree - Managing Director

Castree, who joined Patts from BBH New York last August, was set to share the MD�s role at the newly merged agency with former Y&R MD Gavin Larkin but resigned to achieve �clarity around leadership�.
He was approached by a headhunter about joining Leo Burnett and decided to take up the offer based on impressions about agency chairman Nigel Marsh garnered during two client pitches � NRMA and Virgin Super � which Patts lost to Burnetts.
Castree told B&T he felt a really strong match with the leadership team at Leo Burnett and really admires Marsh�s authenticity. At the time of the offer he was considering returning to the US � his wife is American � or setting up something outside of advertising.
Marsh said he saw a whole host of potential applications locally and internationally before deciding on Castree.
As well as considering Castree a fantastic cultural fit, Marsh was impressed with his particular breed of integrity and international experience garnered at BBH New York.

Leo Burnett, after a spectacular turnaround, won NSW Agency of the Year - CEO Nigel Marsh thanking new MD Tim Castree who he said has already made a huge impact at the agency.

My Opinion about the Advertising Agency:

I thought that Leo Burnett had a wonderful site layout using many aspects of flash, the website is easy to navigate and information is easily accessible.

Leo Burnett also has a very impressive portfolio of clients and work which make them a favourable advertising agency.
