What people say about Eugene!

"Eugene Ruane was certainly one of our most valuable assets, not only as a highly talented creative thinker but, importantly, as one of those key people who have the personality to make a large, often disparate and competitive department of people gel together better as colleagues. His work always pushes the creative boundaries and is always innovative and distinctive which of course is just what was required at the world’s largest advertising agency. He stands up for his creative ideas and is a persuasive presenter. He’s good. He has legions of friends in the advertising world who remain loyal and in touch always, a real testament to his personality."

Roger Manton. Former Creative Director, Saatchi & Saatchi London.

"Eugene's reputation as a creative proceeded him, twenty two years at the top of his game with multi National and International awards to his credit including the coveted ‘Cannes Lion'.

Eugene very quickly put his stamp on our agency by raising our Creative Profile, through his unique creative ability. We soon became the leading creative force within the industry - winning countless awards and 'pitches' on a regular basis.
Eugene would regularly be asked to 'chair' or be a judge at national and international Award Ceremonies.

To summarise - 30 years experience at the top of his profession having worked in leading agencies around the world (London, New York, Paris, New Zealand, Dublin), enhancing the Creative profile of every agency he ever worked. He became a mentor to young creatives who have since moved on to more senior positions in other agencies. Eugene is an outstanding communicator and very entertaining company."

Anton McClelland. Former Executive Creative Director, Publicis QMP Dublin.
