Nick Bailey, Isobar’s former chief executive and chief creative officer EMEA, has joined film production company Dingo Bill as its chairman, CCO and partner.
Bailey, who announced his decision to leave the Dentsu Aegis agency after three years in April, will work on the development of a digital-first creative production house alongside executive producer Jacob Madsen and founder and chief executive, Oliver Warren.
Bailey commented: “This year I had a choice - to enter a third decade working inside a digital creative agency, or to take my 20 years’ experiencefrom LBi, AKQA and Isobar and apply it in a new, dynamic environment full of the ambition and energy I recognize from the early days of digital. This is exactly what I’ve found at Dingo Bill.”
He continued: “There has been an explosion in demand for compelling film content for digital in recent years. As a former agency leader, I know how important it is to engage with creatively driven, collaborative production partners to meet this demand flexibly, efficiently and to a high creative standard. My experience working with Oliver and Jacob at Dingo Bill over many years across a range of clients in this space has been consistently exceptional. They have built a fantastic foundation on which to grow a newly-configured future-facing production business designed for the digital creative economy”.
The UK office of the production house, established in 2010, will continue to be led by Madsen while Oliver will continue to work between the UK and New York office.
