FCB Inferno’s chief creative officer Al Young has announced the promotion of the agency’s executive creative director Owen Lee to partner with him as creative head.
The shared role reflects the growing demand of the business following a number of recent successful pitches, such as BMW UK and the This Girl Can campaign for Sport England.
Young said: “We are bigger and more complicated now - and this restructure has been on my mind for a while. I’ve never been precious about running the train set on my own and I’ve always admired successful creative twin-leadership models. As for us working well together, I’ve known Owen 15 years and worked closely with him in two different agencies. This is about efficiency and enhancing our already much-improved creative output.”
Lee added: “The agency and the FCB network are in a hugely exciting place at the moment. We have some great clients and great people. Gary and I have always found Al brilliant to work for and with, and this new structure will allow us to grow more effectively and bring the best out of our talent”.
Co-executive creative director Gary Robinson will remain in post, serving as creative lead for clients including Mondelez and Beiersdorf.
