Ryan comes from No Fixed Address where he was Associate Creative Director, prior to which he was at Cossette.
Tim Holmes, born in Australia, has a career which spans two decades at agencies in Canada, the US and Australia, most recently serving as a Group Creative Director at Ogilvy Toronto.
From finance and fast food, to underwear and CPG, Tim has extensive experience across multiple categories and disciplines and has been awarded internationally in all major creative shows including Cannes, D&AD, One Show and Clios.
“I've always believed that the best work is driven by collaboration, trust, ambition and genuine love of the what we do for a living” says Tim, “and after a short stint of consulting with the team at Leo's I found myself surrounded by like-minded people. So when Steve and Lisa asked if I wanted to stay on, it felt like a no-brainer.”
Said Steve Persico, "As we continue our evolution to Creative Consultancy, we are thrilled to onboard such diversity of thinking to give us new ways of approaching and solving problems for our partners. We are delighted to add Tim and Ryan, smart and driven Burnetters.”
