McCann London Hires Max Chanan as Creative Director

By Erik Oster 

McCann London hired Max Chanan in the position of creative director. Chanan will work alongside Creative Director Mike Oughton and report to Rob Doubal and Laurence Thomson, joint CCOs and agency presidents.

Chanan arrives from AKQA, where he spent over two years as an associate creative director, working on campaigns for Nike. Prior to AKQA, he served two-year stints at DDB and Sid Lee in Amsterdam. Chanan has worked for McCann before, having arrived at McCann Erickson São Paulo in 2005 before relocating for a role at Muse Amsterdam in 2007.

“Max is a smart, born storyteller with a proven track record, plus he will add his Brazilian flair to the agency, Laurence Thomson told Campaign. “We’re well chuffed we could persuade him to join McCann.”
