MICHAEL RITCHIEMichael Ritchie is both the Managing Director/ Executive Producer and co-owner of Revolver and it’s experimental arm, Will O’Rourke. The entity is Australian based and known for its commitment to produce work that people seem to remember and hopefully like.
Michael began his career in agencies, head of Broadcast at Ogilvy in Sydney, then a more regional gig at DDB HK. 1999 saw his most successful collaboration when he joined and later became partner with Steve Rogers at Revolver. It was in 2010 that Michael co-founded Will O’Rourke – which concentrates on brand funded alternatives. Hopefully there is an awareness of both these companies and the reputation and awards they have attained over the years. He has been a member of the Craft Jury at D&AD 2014, Craft Jury at Cannes 2013, LIA 2013, Spikes 2012 and has twice been the Chairman of the Craft Jury at the AWARD awards.
Michael is to chair one of the Live Direction jury panels at Ciclope Festival 2014.
