Federico Durán is departing Conill Saatchi & Saatchi LA to join Circus Marketing as executive creative director of its Los Angeles office. He will lead the 22-staff creative department working for clients such as Netflix, Spotify, Warner Bros Pictures, SAP, Grupo Bimbo, Barcel USA, Turner, Boomerang, Cartoon Network, TNT, Warner Channel, TBS and USA Space.
This new role underscores the agency's evolution. Previously, Circus Marketing had one ECD in Buenos Aires and Mexico that managed all global campaigns. Now the agency has a leader for each office: Duran in Los Angeles; Seto Olivieri in Buenos Aires; Dauquen Chabeldin in Mexico; Pablo Perez Solero in Madrid.
Duran will reports to founder/CEO Bruno Lambertini.
"We opened Circus in Los Angeles because this city is the center of technological advancements and the entrainment industry," says Lambertini. With growing client business, he added, “with Federico joining the team, with his years of experience and his creative leadership, will have the key to consolidate our goals in this context of constant growth."
Durán has more than 15 years of experience in advertising working in both Argentina and the U.S. He has worked with clients including General Mills, PlayStation, T-Mobile, Toyota, Nestlé, Adidas, the NBA, Honda, Pepsi, Continental Airlines, Coors Light and P&G.
