DLKW Lowe has hired two new senior creative teams to join the growing creative department. Creative team Bruno Ribeiro and Luiz Filipin join the agency this week, alongside Roberto ‘Bob’ Kilciauskas and Pedro Rosa – both teams originally hail from Brazil.
They report directly into creative leaders ECD Rich Denney and Chief Creative Officer Dave Henderson. The appointments are effective immediately. The hires highlight a period of growth for the agency following a successful new business run, as the agency beds in new clients including the Post Office, Lenovo, Remy Martin and Samaritans, alongside existing clients. Both teams will work across the portfolio of agency clients.
ECD Rich Denney comments “Both teams’ talent and boundless hunger to create world class attention-grabbing work makes them the perfect fit for our agency and for the direction we are heading in. They could have chosen to work at any agency in London so we are delighted they are joining us.”
Brazilian born Bruno and Luiz are working together as a team for the first time at DLKW Lowe. Bruno joins from AKQA London with over eighteen years’ experience in multicultural, game-changing agencies. Previously at LOLA Madrid, Ogilvy Brazil and Leo Burnett Lisbon, award-winning Bruno has worked on Nike, Unilever, Coca Cola, American Express, Kraft Foods and McDonald's. New partner Luiz Filipin joins from Lowe Borghi Brasil. Previously at Wieden + Kennedy São Paulo, Luiz has worked on Nike, Coca-Cola and Unilever brands.
Senior team Roberto ‘Bob’ Kilciauskas and Pedro Rosa join DLKW Lowe with an equally impressive agency background in Brazil including Africa Agency, Y&R Brazil and AlmapBBDO, Sao Paulo. The multi-award winning team has picked up Cannes Lions in recent years for Audi (Press 2014), Jeep Refuel (Press 2014) and ESPN Eye test (Cyber 2015). The team are also regular contributing teachers at Miami Ad School.
DLKW Lowe has had a strong first half of the year with a particular focus on talent; Jamie Elliott was promoted to CEO and Dave Henderson to Chief Creative Officer following a record-breaking new business run in 2014, Anna Vogt joined from BBH as Head of Planning and the creative department secured Denis Kakazu as Head of Art. 2015 has seen new work launches across clients old and new, global and domestic from Post Office to Persil, Lenovo to Knorr. The agency continues to gather momentum as it prepares for a milestone move to East London in December 2015.
