Growing up in rural NSW, Brendan Swansborough has since honed his exceptional talents in advertising, surrounding himself with some of the best advertising talent in the world. Brendan worked at Anomoly (New York), where he managed the Budweiser account, leading two Super Bowl campaigns that were consecutively ranked #1 and #2 on the US Today Super Bowl ad poll.
Back in Australia, his first large scale integrated campaign for Tooheys New, “The Beer Economy”, won dozens of global awards and lifted Tooheys New out of a ten-year decline. Brendan has returned to Newcastle to raise a family and is investing his talents locally as Group Account Director for Enigma.
At such a young age, he has enjoyed an incredible career working on campaigns for some of the largest companies in the world such as Samsung, Cadbury, Lion Nathan, General Mills, and Procter & Gamble.
