Two key creative roles have been added to the executive team, to work alongside the current executives across other areas of the marketing lifecycle including Media & Performance, CRM & Loyalty, Customer Experience & Commerce.

Dick Van Motman (pictured) has been appointed as Global CEO, Creative, with a remit to develop and grow the creative proposition for Dentsu Aegis Network globally. Van Motman will work in close collaboration with Gordon Bowen, who steps into the new role of Chief Creative Officer. Bowen will drive the overall quality of Dentsu Aegis’ creative output, drawing on his extensive experience and client network. Bowen will also continue to be Chairman of mcgarrybowen.

Two further appointments will focus on driving operational excellence and closer working relationships with Dentsu Inc. Following the appointment of Volker Doberanzke as Global President, DAN Business Operations in January, Nicholas Rey takes on the new role of Chief Network Development Officer, with a remit to develop and align the organisation around the needs of its clients. So Aoki becomes the new Chief Corporate Planning Officer, working across the wider Executive to define and deliver the strategic direction of the business.


All four roles will report directly to Tim Andree, Executive Chairman & CEO, and will sit on the Dentsu Aegis Global Executive Committee, effective immediately.


Andree said, “These important appointments to our Executive team will drive even greater connection for our clients to the full spread of our world-class capabilities. Clients want to work with agencies who provide outstanding, consistent services that can be integrated on a global basis and this announcement is an pivotal step to organizing our business around those priorities.


“This is an exciting time as we set our direction and evolve our top leadership team to deliver our vision of innovating the way brands are built and helping our clients to win, keep and grow their best customers to drive long-term success.”
