DDB & Tribal Amsterdam have hired Alex Herwig and Jeroen Thissen, who are coming from Havas. The team got the agencies’ attention through their Tweetphony, winning them multiple awards this year, among which a Gold and Silver Lion in Cannes – proving once more the importance of winning awards. The new team will work across the full client portfolio, including global brands such as KLM, Heineken, Adidas, C&A, Vattenfall (NUON) and McDonald’s. Mark Chalmers, the relatively new ECD at DDB & Tribal: “Alex and Jeroen share our creative ambitions. They are committed and adventurous, and it’s great to have them onboard.” Committed and adventurous might sound a tad contradictory, but we can imagine it’s exactly the kind of creative you want on board.
