Our Tribe

Scott Weatherley

Managing Director

Scott honed his expertise in the travel industry, having been a Product Manager for Escape Holidays and Marketing Manager for GO Holidays, before being headhunted to Agency land. He was Client Services Director at Energi, the second-largest indie agency in New Zealand at that time, for five years.

His portfolio included Goodman Fielder, Cadbury, Coca-Cola, Harvey World Travel, the NZ Heart Foundation, ENZA, Sealord and ATS Pacific. His experience on both sides of the Agency fence helped form Blackfoot’s approach to client relations, with a focus on ensuring highly-skilled senior staff were immersed in campaigns, with continual accountability for spend and rationale.

Scott now leads Client Service and is an advocate for full-service functionality, but is not bound by exclusivity.

Emma Weatherley

Managing Director

Emma heads the Creative team and has developed multi-faceted campaigns for a range of clients. She has a deep understanding of retail, travel, prestige, automotive and construction categories, and has worked extensively in brand development. Her strategic skillset has built brands including Central Park Tourism, Destination Rotorua, Furniture City, Jalcon Homes, New Balance, Shiseido and Tile Warehouse.

Emma likes to get to the crux of a client’s needs with her analytical approach to rationale, her design execution, eye for detail and copywriting skills.
She believes that a whole, inclusive agency, is more powerful than each of its facets, and will often involve research, digital and media resources to ensure the creative approach is in harmony with the objectives.
