Edu Pou will move from old Amsterdam to New; beginning November 3rd, the former head of creative innovation at W+K Amsterdam will serve as ECD at The Barbarian Group in Manhattan.
The Group’s new top creative will lead all accounts and report to CEO Sophie Kelly while working with Kelly and co-founders Benjamin Palmer and Keith Butters in order to “diversify the agency’s existing portfolio.”
Prior to occupying the head of innovation role, Pou worked as creative director in the same office; he also spent time as a senior copywriter at CP+B, working on Domino’s Pizza, Volkswagen and Nike among others. His portfolio also includes work for Heineken, Coca-Cola and EA sports.
Before you ask: yes, he mentioned the desk. He also takes great headshots.
