Ad agency RKCR/Y&R has hired Toby Talbot as executive creative director. He was previously executive creative director of DDB New Zealand and regional creative director for DDB Asia Pacific.

Talbot, who was recently named creative of the year for Australia and New Zealand by Campaign Asia, replaces Damon Collins.

Mark Roalfe, chairman of RKCR/Y&R, said: "We scoured the globe for the very best creative talent and were really excited to find Toby. The standard of the work he has led at DDB is fantastic, but most of all Toby is a very charming and down to earth chap. He's very Rainey Kelly in all his attitudes and I'm really looking forward to working with him to grow RKCR to its next level.”
