He was a four-decade veteran of the advertising industry and founder of the agency Whybin TBWA Group.

The agency was best known for the ASB Bank's 'Goldstein' campaign - one of the longest-running uninterrupted advertising campaigns in New Zealand.

Mr Walden's career stretched back to what he described as the Mad Men days of the advertising industry.

His family describe him as a much loved father, husband and friend and say he died peacefully on Saturday morning.

He is survived by his wife Annie and two children Joanna and Michael.
