Lukas Derksen, the managing partner of Sid Lee’s New York offices, announced today the promotion of Dan Brooks and Daniel Chandler to co-executive creative directors, effective immediately.
The creative pair have spent the past several years at Sid Lee, leading creative work on accounts such as Facebook, Absolut, Intel, Sony Playstation, Volkswagen and Rolex. Brooks first joined Sid Lee in 2011 as a senior art director, following a two year stint as a senior creative at 180 Amsterdam, before being made creative director the following year. Chandler joined Sid Lee as a copywriter back in 2010, following four years at Publicis, eventually working his way up to creative director.
“The Dans have been on the forefront of Sid Lee’s rise to the global stage, and both are among our organization’s most talented and multi-dimensional creatives,” said Derksen. “It’s young creative leadership like theirs that’s driving the future of our industry. With them, we are uniquely positioned as one of the most transformative forces in the U.S. agency landscape.”
