Nimick, who has worked at Ogilvy for 16 years with a stint at BBDO Singapore in between, has carried out below-, through- and above-the-line activity for clients including Ford, American Express, DHL, Royal Mail and Unilever.

More recently he was closely involved with the group’s £50m pan-European easyJet business, working as part of the pitch-winning team on the account earlier this year (MW May 25).
