Euro 4D Amsterdam Gets New MD

Ogilvy exec Johansen fills post vacated in April

Euro RSCG has hired a longtime Ogilvy & Mather executive as managing director of Euro RSCG 4D Amsterdam, filling a position left open after a leadership exodus earlier this year.

Christian Johansen jumped to the digitally-focused Dutch shop on November 1 after working at Ogilvy since 1998, most recently as an executive group director at it's New York office. Johansen will report to Floris van Hasselt, CEO of Euro RSCG Netherlands. 

4D's previous managing director, Sanders Volten, left the agency in April, along with executive creative director Sicco Beerda, creative director Bram de Rooij, and strategy director Eric Ytsma, to launch startup agency Kingsday. 4D has not hired a new ecd, instead promoting Darren Reynoldson and Feike Kloostra to creative director positions at 4D, overseeing work from the office alongside Peter Hamelinck and Thijs de Boer of Euro RSCG Amsterdam. 

4D's clients include Volvo, it's largest by revenue, and Kraft.
