Beattie for Sharks 50th in Kinsale
The adman who created the Wonderbra ‘Hello Boys’ posters with supermodel Eva Herzigova is coming to Ireland soon. Trevor Beattie will chair the 50th Sharks international advertising festival in Kinsale in September. A founder of the Beattie McGuinness Bungay agency, he has worked on some of Britain’s top brands.
Beattie’s mould-breaking ads include Sony PlayStation, Ikea, Carling and the Labour Party. The 53-year-old Brummie with corkscrew hair was named Britain’s 9th most influential media person in 2002. He produces ads for Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic and has bought a £100,000 ticket for its inaugural flight next year.
