Grey New York has expanded its creative leadership team, hiring four new executive creative directors.

Jeff Anderson joins Grey from McCann where he was an executive creative director. He has created work at both creative and digital agencies for such brands as HBO, Snickers, Activision, Chevrolet, New Orleans Tourism and Hewlett Packard.

He has also worked at TBWA in New York, as well as Droga5, GS&P and CHI&Partners.

Qian Qian joins from R/GA New York where he served as executive creative director leading Samsung US. He has produced work for Coca-Cola, MasterCard and Domino's Pizza. He previously worked at Deutsch, CP&B, McCann and AKQA.

Tristan Kincaid also joins from R/GA, where he served as executive creative director leading Samsung US. Previously, he worked at Arnold Worldwide and spent more than a decade at Ogilvy. His client roster has included Coca-Cola, 23&Me, IBM, Disney, Miller Lite, American Express and Hershey's.

Finally, Hannah Fishman joins from DDB New York where she served as executive creative director on Heineken, Lipton, Glaad, Johnson & Johnson Beauty and Electrolux. Previously, she worked at Edelman Digital as creative director.

"We’re excited to welcome such experienced and talented creative leaders, all masters of their craft, to the Grey New York office," said John Patroulis, worldwide chief creative officer at Grey. "Their hiring is part of an ongoing infusion of senior creative talent in line with our commitment to make 75% of the agency the creative department.

"It’s as simple as hiring more and more great creative people with a variety of backgrounds, but it allows us to evolve our model to offer a much broader and more diverse set of skills, a deeper creative bench, and the flattest, simplest access to the best solutions for our clients."

Patroulis said more changes at the network's flagship office would be announced in the coming weeks.
