After spending the last seven years at BBH London, where he last served as executive producer/partner, Ruben Mercadal has headed to the States to join up with Ogilvy New York in the newly created position of senior film content producer. During his long stay at BBH’s London hub, Mercadal racked up One Show, Clios, D&AD and Cannes Lions for his work on Johnnie Walker’s 2009 campaign, “The Man Who Walked Around the World.” In addition to the whiskey brand, Mercadal served as agency producer for a host of other clients including Axe (remember this from last year?), Audi, Dunlop, Mentos and Barclays.
Prior to BBH, Mercadal worked as a broadcast producer at the London offices of both Publicis and Saatchi & Saatchi. He officially assumed his new role at Ogilvy on Tuesday.
