Eve will report into DDB North America CEO and president Justin Thomas-Copeland to carry out agency’s vision of becoming the future-forward creative powerhouse and reigniting DDB’s story in Canada.
Justin said, “We’ve been waiting for someone like Eve in Canada, who combines a true creative spirit, a growth mindset, with people-first leadership values. In order to have a strong, connected DDB North America, we need a strong, DDB Canada. And Eve will play a vital role in making it shine and fostering borderless partnerships with our US agencies, to deliver the most powerful creative solutions to clients. We all have the same vision that we can create more value together, for our clients and so, we cannot wait to have Eve on board!”
Eve comes to DDB Canada with extensive experience building brand’s and businesses, along with a passion for creativity and the people behind the award-winning work. She spent over 16 years at Sid Lee, most recently as co-managing partner of Sid Lee Toronto, where she partnered with a wide range of organisations, from start-ups to global multi-nationals, to elevate their brand experience and unlock business transformation and growth. A huge area of focus of hers has always been the business community and promoting the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace.
Eve said, “My first item of business is the people, because after all, creativity is a people business. The talent market is very hot right now and people don’t fit just one job description. There is so much talent out there that are both excited about the transformation journey that DDB Canada is on and have the experience and passion we need to adapt the business for today. This is where I fully support Justin’s vision, and am thrilled to join the North American leadership team, and take the helm of DDB Canada in this new journey of endless opportunity.”
Eve’s appointment follows Kevin Brady’s departure in February 2022 after a long tenure as president and CEO of DDB Canada. Justin has been overseeing operations in the interim.view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessDDB North America, Wed, 10 Aug 2022 15:10:23 GMT
