Having multiple chief creative officers isn’t the norm for most agencies, but AKQA has quintupled down the CCO role with the recent promotion of two creatives. That means AKQA has five CCOs with global remit.

Shu Hung and Johnny Budden have been promoted to chief creative officers at AKQA, up from executive creative directors, joining Peter Lund, Diego Machado and Hugo Viega, who were promoted in 2020. 

“These promotions recognize the massive and enormous impact that Shu and Johnny have had, both as creative leaders and their ability to build such a positive culture as fantastic role models, both within AKQA and across our industry,” AKQA founder and CEO Ajaz Ahmed told ADWEEK, adding that he appreciates their international experience and independent spirit.

Hung was previously ecd of AKQA Los Angeles, joining in 2022.
