R/GA promoted agency veteran and global chief creative officer Nick Law to the position of vice chairman.
In the newly-created position, Law will play an even greater role in shaping the agency’s business strategy and overall vision, while working closely with the agency’s senior clients. He will continue to work based out of the agency’s New York headquarters, reporting directly to R/GA chairman and CEO Robert Greenberg.
“Over the past 15 years, Nick has been an incredible partner to me and the entire executive team,” Greenberg said in a statement to Adweek. “Under his leadership, we will continue our relentless pursuit of innovation far into the future.”
“As we continue to evolve—exploring and creating new capabilities, and opening new offices around the globe—I will look to Nick to ensure that creative is at the heart of everything we do, from technology and UX to strategy and storytelling,” he added.
Law arrived at R/GA as a chief creative officer over fifteen years ago, in early 2001. During his tenure with the agency, he has worked with cleints including Nike, Google, Samsung, Johnson & Johnson, Beats by Dre and IBM, receiving a promotion to global CCO along the way.
“Since starting at R/GA 15 years ago, the most interesting thing about my job has always been the next thing,” Law told Adweek “We’ve changed so rapidly; I feel as though I’ve had a different job every every day. When Bob hired me we were an office of 100 people designing websites in Hell’s Kitchen. Now we have 16 offices across the world with 1,800 people creating everything from Super Bowl spots to connected products. It’s never been easy, but it’s always been fun. I’m looking forward to the next 15 years.”
