Kim Pick

Executive Creative Director


New Zealand

With over 25 years of award-winning advertising experience on some of the world’s biggest brands, Kim Pick has traversed the globe, working at leading agencies in New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, London and New York. It’s a far cry from where she grew up, on then-isolated Kawau Island, where she lived a self-sufficient lifestyle, without roads, phones, television or electricity, and attended school by correspondence. Inexplicably, she is drawn to big cities, bright lights, broadcast and mobile.

Kim began her career as a journalist and film critic, before switching to copywriting in Australia. By her mid-20s, she was appointed Creative Director of Singapore agency McCann Erickson, working on accounts across South East Asia. Moving to the UK, she joined Saatchi & Saatchi London, where she was Regional Creative Director on P&G accounts for Europe, Middle East and Africa. Kim was ECD of RAPP New York until 2014, when she returned to the New Zealand industry, joining Colenso BBDO as Creative Director. She was appointed national Executive Creative Director of VMLY&R New Zealand in 2018.

In addition to the work, she is passionate about the industry and talent development. A former chairman of Australia’s AWARD School and member of the New Zealand Marketing Association Digital Advisory panel, she currently serves on the NZ Communications Council Inclusiveness and Diversity Council. She is a vegetarian, and has a worm farm. Obviously.
