Saatchi & Saatchi London names Guillermo Vega as new CCO

Vega will take up the role from next week (1 October). As well as leading the growth of 72andSunny New York he also set up Wieden+Kennedy São Paolo where he spent three-and-a-half years as executive creative director and had a stint as regional creative director of Y&R in New York where he oversaw the business’s work in Latin America.

Vega will report to chief executive Magnus Djaba and global chief creative officer Kate Stanners, while joining the management team in London alongside chief operating officer Sam Hawkey, chief strategy officer Richard Huntington and managing director Larissa Vince.

Stanners said: “The role of CCO of Saatchi London has to be one of the best jobs in the business, so we used the opportunity to talk to the best creative talent in the world. Guillermo is that person – and he brings a unique mix of skill as a creative and experience as a creative director. He has been personally responsible for an extraordinary body of award-winning work and has set up agencies in both Brazil and New York. I believe he has the talent, energy and passion to lead Saatchi & Saatchi London and take it to the next level."

Vega added: “I’m ready to explore London and make this experience fun, exciting and memorable – and make some great work. Thanks for having me here."
