ROTHCO | Accenture Interactive appoints Jen Speirs as Executive Creative Director

Apr. 02, 2019

Today, ROTHCO, part of Accenture Interactive, announces the appointment of Jen Speirs as Executive Creative Director. Jen’s appointment will see former ECD Alan Kelly promoted to Chief Creative Officer. 

Prior to working at ROTHCO | Accenture Interactive, Australian-born Jen was Deputy Executive Creative Director at BMF Australia. A multi award-winning creative, Jen has worked on brands such as McDonald’s, Carefree, Arnott’s, Berlei, TAL, Bonds, BWS, UN Women and the Workplace Gender Equality Agency. Her work has won awards at NY Festivals, Clio, AWARD, Cannes, Effies, Media Federation, Caples, and Spikes Asia.

In addition, Jen has been a member of several award juries, both in Australia and overseas, including Cannes, Spikes Asia, AdFest and NY Festivals. She has also been invited to speak on her career at various events, including the Inaugural Australian 3% Conference and Cannes See It Be It.

Jen comments:

“When I look at a lot of ROTHCO’s work, like JFK Unsilenced, the #takenotice breast cancer campaign on the Molly Malone Statue, Sleeping Flags – it all has that perfect combination of creativity, innovation and craft. So the opportunity to go and be a part of that, and work with the awesome people I’ve met so far, was far too good to say no to. I can’t wait to get over there and get stuck in.”

 

Rothco’s Chief Creative Officer, Alan Kelly, says: 

"I am chuffed we have poached someone as incredibly talented as Jen Speirs. I think it’s a testament to the work we are doing in Rothco that we are attracting world-class talent like Jen to these shores. Jen is a super addition to the team as she is both gifted and decent, two qualities we always look for when we hire. I also may have told her that Dublin's weather is pretty much the same as Sydney's – hopefully, she hasn't fact-checked this yet. Welcome, Jen!"
