Stefano Zunino, CEO of JWT Latin America and head of digital worldwide, announced today that Rodrigo Grau will join JWT Brazil CCO Ricardo John as chief creative officers for JWT Latin America. Both Grau and John will lead creativity for the Brazil office and the entire South America region. 

Grau joins the agency from David Sao Paulo, where he has served as creative vice president since January of 2015. Prior to joining David, he served as executive creative director at BBDO Argentina for seven years, following stints as a creative director with Ogilvy and Del Campo Nazca Saatchi & Saatchi.

“We are very excited about the explosive power this leadership team will bring to J. Walter Thompson Brazil and the region’s creativity,” said Zunino. “Ricardo has been doing a fantastic [job] consolidating the Brazilian office as one of the key creative hubs of the global network. Rodrigo is a true integrated creative and his experience and energy will bring new creative challenges to the network. I’m convinced our clients in Brazil and all throughout the region will strongly benefit from this partnership.”

“We are thrilled to have Rodrigo onboard. I’m sure together we will challenge our creative teams to their maximum potential and keep on driving integration amongst the offices in the region,” added John.

“I’m excited with this new adventure and confident on the results the great creative team of J. Walter Thompson Brazil and all of South Latam can produce. It will be an honor to work side by side with Ricardo, ensuring these offices deliver the highest creative power. I just hope soccer doesn’t divide what advertising is putting together,” joked the Argentinean creative.
