hasan & partners Poaches R/GA Talent Director

By Erik Oster 

hasan & partners Group appointed Ryan Savage as group talent director. He will serve out of the agency’s Finnish office and be responsible for attracting new talent and retaining existing team members across all agencies in the group, which includes hasan & partners, hasan communications, Frankly Partners, Perfect Fools, and Raw & Land.


Savage joins the agency from R/GA, where he served as talent manager for a year and a half, managing the recruiting process for its Los Angeles office and also helped manage talent for the agency’s New York office. Prior to joining R/GA, Savage spent a little over a year as human resources and recruitment manager at IPG Mediabrands. That followed around a year and a half in the same role at Draftfcb. Before joining Draftfcb he spent around three and a half years as an HR and recruiting consultant at Argumentii Consulting  in Helsinki, so this won’t be the first time he has had to brave a Finnish winter.

“Ryan has exceptional experience building and strengthening industry-leading creative teams and we are pleased to welcome him on board,” said hasan & partners Group CEO and CCO Eka Ruola. “Ryan will play a crucial part in our group expansion and highlights our commitment to our staff and culture.”
