Saatchi & Saatchi Has a New Worldwide Creative Director for the First Time in 20 Years

Kate Stanners replaces Pablo Del Campo

After 20 years with Saatchi & Saatchi, Pablo Del Campo will leave the network and his current role as worldwide creative director. Del Campo will be replaced by Kate Stanners, the current chief creative officer at Saatchi & Saatchi London, who will also continue to serve in that role. The changes take effect immediately.

During his time with Saatchi & Saatchi, Del Campo launched Buenos Aires-based Del Campo Saatchi & Saatchi, which created work for clients including Coca-Cola and Sony Playstation. Del Campo took over the global role, which had been vacant for six years, in 2014.

"It has been an enormous privilege for me to have developed so many 'ideas bigger than ads' in a space as inspiring as Saatchi & Saatchi, hand in hand with the most prestigious industry leaders and creative teams," Del Campo said in a statement. "The decision to leave this 20-year-old adventure has not been easy but the outcome surpassed by far my expectations."

Stanners has been in her current role at Saatchi & Saatchi London since 2014. She joined the network in 2005 as an executive creative director. She's worked on a number of big campaigns for the agency including the hilarious "Pooface" campaign for Pampers, which captures slow-motion shots of babies in the act, and HomeAway's recent campaign mocking Airbnb. Stanners has won 33 Lions for work she's done at Saatchi.

"I've lived, breathed and loved Saatchi & Saatchi for the last 11 years, so the opportunity to take leadership of the creative performance of this great network and drive it to even more success is an exciting and very personal honor," Stanners said.
