The promotion recognizes Medvedocky’s work in raising the quality of the creative product, as well as the support his colleagues have felt within the region.
New York, October 08, 2015 - Alain Groenendaal, President and CEO of Grey Latin America, announced today the promotion of Diego Medvedocky to Vice President, Regional Creative Director. Medvedocky will continue his creative leadership of Grey Argentina, splitting his time between the agency and Grey’s 13 offices throughout the region.
“I’m very happy to formalize Diego’s role as leader of Grey’s creative team in the region, given his commitment to and active participation in the network, supporting ideas, proposing new approaches and motivating everyone to be their best. The executive creative directors have received a lot of support from Diego, as he is always ready to help transform a good idea into something brilliant. Furthermore, Diego has unconditionally assumed the ‘Famously Effective’ culture of Grey, which has led an agency that in the past was known as good strategically but without creative shine, to become one of the most creative and innovative agencies in the region, making it in turn more attractive to the best talent,” declared Alain Groenendaal, President and CEO of Grey Latin America.
Medvedocky joined Grey Latin America in 2013 as General Creative Director of Grey Argentina and has led his team with great success. In 2014, under his creative leadership the agency has won several distinguished awards, such as a Grand Prix and the title of “Agency of the Year” at the Argentina Creative Circle Diente festival, one of the most prestigious local advertising awards. In addition, the agency took home 4 Lions in 2014 and 6 more at the 2015 Cannes Festival. Diego is also a valued figure in the global network for his contributions to the Grey Global Creative Council, and last year was named Chairman of the Latin America version of the Council.
“The truth is that it’s an enormous joy and responsibility to lead Grey Latin America creatively. The executive creative directors of all the agencies in the region are key players, and to tell the truth, we have become a group of friends who believe in the same things and all row in the same direction: making every idea a better idea. What’s happened the past two years in Cannes is a reflection of this and the goal is to show that everything we’ve achieved up until now hasn’t been an accident, but rather part of a long term plan,” said Diego Medvedocky.
