Q: Who do we think we are?

Assignment works because we bring your business leaders together with ours.

And here they are.

All passionate, well-seasoned individuals with one common goal: what’s best for your business.

They’re faces you can expect to see a lot of.


Peter Biggs

He’s Biggsy to everyone and has led a series of extraordinary agencies in his 25-year career in advertising. He specialises in taking very good agencies and making them outstanding. He is also involved in every aspect of New Zealand business and culture. The Arts. Education. Technology. Music. Literature. Politics. He is without doubt the quintessential renaissance man. Like Assignment itself, he’s a one-off.

Specialising in social marketing and behaviour change, his Road Safety work with the New Zealand Transport Agency has been recognised globally as World’s best practice. Duster is a Senior Partner at Assignment Group.

Kim Thorp

Kim has often been described as ‘a genius without ego’ (but never by Kim naturally). He is the brains behind some of New Zealand’s most iconic campaigns and as a result is the only New Zealander recognised in the Australasian Advertising Hall of Fame. Kim has other well-known passions outside advertising these days, but fortunately for Assignment and its clients, he still has a day job with us.
