Kash Sree Joins gyro New York as Group Creative Director

By Erik Oster 

Kash Sree has joined gyro New York as group creative director.

Sree has decades of experience in the advertising industry as a copywriter and creative director.

Back in 1997, he joined W+K Portland as a copywriter and worked on the agency’s Nike and Coca-Cola accounts for around five years. He left to accept a position as senior vice president, creative director with Leo Burnett Chicago in May of 2002, where he helped created the “Who Are You?” campaign for Nintendo. After four and a half years he moved on to a group creative director role at BBH New York, where he worked on a global repositioning campaign for Vaseline and also worked on Axe, British Airways, Levi’s and All detergent. After working as an executive creative director at JWT and Pereira & O’Dell, he joined SS+K as chief creative officer in 2011. At SS+K he worked with clients including Chevy, Kraft, Pfizer, and Subway. After just a year he left the agency.

“Kash is a great talent but, a year out, we all realized that our styles are different and best to part ways,” an agency spokesperson said at the time.

Sree told Fast Company that he was taking a break after his departure from SS+K, “because it was the hardest job I ever had.”

He added that he was contemplating opening his own agency or taking another job after a break but that he would “be a lot slower about choosing.”
