“Joins our London office as UK Chief Creative Officer”
Following award-winning success in Latin America, Juan José will become responsible for leading and inspiring the agency in his new role as UK CCO.
In his current dual role as Executive Creative Director, Latin America, and Executive Creative Director of Colombia, Juan José has helped to put Latin America on the international creative map. His leadership and flair for effectiveness has led to the region being recognized at major award shows including the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity with a Gold Design Lion in 2015 for “Priceless Traps” and One Show Gold Pencil for “Terribly Delicious” – both firsts for Colombia. In addition, earlier this year he was a juror at Cannes Lions. His winning work also includes D&AD, Clio, Wave, FIAP and Grand Prix at El Ojo de Iberoamérica among others.
Sarah Todd, CEO, UK, commenting on his appointment, “Juan is a world class creative innovator who inspires greatness because he looks for opportunities inside every brief. His work genuinely touches people, changes behavior, and solves business problems. We couldn’t be more excited about his arrival and his ability to create pivotal ideas.”
Juan José will relocate to London in January 2016.
