Memac Ogilvy has appointed Paul Shearer as the Group’s new Chief Creative Officer (CCO). Mr Shearer brings 25 years of experience in advertising to his new role and will be based in Memac Ogilvy’s Dubai, UAE office.
Commenting on the appointment, Edmond Moutran, Chairman and CEO of Memac Ogilvy said, “Paul’s record speaks for itself and we are confident that he will drive our group forward to even higher creative levels.”
Mr Shearer’s inspired work for brands such as Guess Jeans, Nike, Audi, and Levis has won him global admiration and accolades, including 18 Cannes Lions, many of which were the coveted Grand Prix, 10 D&AD pencils, 19 Clio statues and his work received the “Best of Show” award at the One Club. A “Guess Jeans Film” with Harry Dean Stanton and Juliet Lewis paved the way for commercials that experts recall looked more like Hollywood films rather than ads.
“Being able to spearhead creative operations as CCO at Memac Ogilvy is a responsibility that I am thrilled to be carrying forward. The network has an incredibly rich history within the advertising industry, and the talent that I’ll be collaborating with in my view is second to none,” noted Mr Shearer.
