After spending the last three years at TBWA\London, where he currently serves as executive creative director and global CD for McDonald’s, Andre Laurentino is heading to Ogilvy to assume the global ECD post on Unilever, effective February 2014. The Brazilian native will remain based in London when he joins O&M, whose U.K. office serves as the global hub for Unilever brands including Dove and Hellman’s. Laurentino (pictured alongside his new boss, O&M worldwide CCO Tham Khai Meng) succeeds Gerry Human, who has now been bumped up to CCO at Ogilvy London.  During his career, the new Ogilvy global ECD worked for several years at the likes of AlmapBBDO and Lew’Lara\TBWA, picking up Cannes Lions, D&AD and One Show Pencils along the way.
