OgilvyOne UK has announced the appointment of Jon Andrews as Creative Technology Director. Reporting to Executive Creative Directors Emma DeLaFosse and Charlie Wilson, Andrews will be tasked with building the Creative Technology Department at OgilvyOne UK, harnessing innovation and driving technology into the heart of the creative process.
Andrews spent the last decade working at some of the leading mobile and digital agencies, and joins OgilvyOne after recent stints at Mother and BBH. He is best know for his digital work on brands including Mercedes Benz, Pimms, Yeo Valley, ASOS, Mentos and Sony PlayStation.
Speaking about this recent hire, Emma de la Fosse commented: “We looked long and hard to find the right person for this role. Jon is an inventor. He’s not just a talker, he’s a practitioner. We’ve already done some exciting stuff here at OgilvyOne but we want to do more, and Jon is the right person to help take us up to the next level.”
Jon Andrews commented: “Many digital and above the line agencies are struggling to effectively integrate creative technology into their traditional agency models and make the most of opportunities presented by the changing landscape. OgilvyOne has achieved a great balance between traditional and digital and I’ve been impressed by the ambition and desire to push the boundaries of technology within it’s existing creative offering. I’m very excited to be here.”
