Lee Sunter

Executive Creative Director
Saatchi & Saatchi
, New Zealand

Lee Sunter is the Executive Creative Director at Saatchi & Saatchi New Zealand.
In 2021 he was ranked No1 Creative Director in Asia Pacific and 17th in the world, at the One Club for Creativity.
Over the years, his work has won Best in Shows, Grand Prixs, Pencils and Golds around the world.
Recently he creatively led the launch of The Royal Australian Mint’s Donation Dollar - the world’s first legal tender currency designed to be given not spent.
In 2021 it made the Fast Company ‘World Changing Idea’ list and went on to become the most globally awarded campaign of the year.
Creating an environment for people to be themselves, and produce and craft brilliant ideas, is one of the reasons he frequently turns up for work.
Free biscuits is another.
Outside of work and the free biscuits, he likes to love his powerhouse wife Katie, 3 young kids and dog - Donald.
Life is noisy. Very noisy. But Lee finds time to offset this with his quiet, very quiet, walk to work - even in the pouring Auckland rain.
