Full-service ad shop Gyro has plucked Drew Meyers from Organic and named him president of its San Francisco office. In his new role, Meyers will jointly lead Gyro’s San Francisco office with Executive Creative Director Steffan Postaer, who joined the agency last February.
Meyers succeeds Robert Ray, who left Gyro last November for agency DWA where he is president, Americas.
At Organic, the Omnicom digital shop, Meyers was head of client services at the agency’s San Francisco office working with marketers such as Intel, Visa, Walmart and Nike. He had been at Organic for just nine months before being drawn to Gyro.
Postaer stated that Meyers’ "pedigree and passion make him a perfect fit when it comes to executing humanly relevant ideas for all of Gyro’s clients and the new ones to come.”
Before Organic, Meyers was managing director Publicis Modem/Riney San Francisco, where he was responsible for the office’s P&L, client relationships and new business development. Prior to that, he was senior vice president, digital group account director at sister agency Publicis. Previously, he held positions at MRM and Digitas.
Gyro San Francisco clients include Cloudera, Dell Software Group, Google, Ryder, and Smart Technologies, which appointed the agency last year to create the company’s first global brand campaign. The campaign is expected to kick off in the first quarter of 2013.
The agency has 600 staffers in 15 offices worldwide. Other offices include Cincinnati, New York, and London.
