DDB & Tribal appointed Menno Schipper and Nils Taildeman as Creative Directors. The team, that has been working at the agency for the last 5 years, reinforces the CD’s Joris Kuijpers & Dylan de Backer and Bart Mol & Pol Hoenderboom. According to Managing Partner Ivo Roefs with the new clients acquired last year (among them TomTom, C&A and adidas) the agency required a new CD team: “Menno and Nils have demonstrated to not only be good in above the line, but also to have a feel for integrated campaigns with a digital heart. The promotion of Menno and Nils was necessary, but also more than logical. Besides that we find it important at DDB & Tribal Amsterdam that talent can continue to grow.” We also find it important that talent can continue to grow – good point, Mr Roefs! Anyway, Schipper and Taildeman will be responsible for the accounts of Nuon/Vattenfall, Mammoet, Chocomel, Verbond van Verzekeraars and InShared – for the latter the team won a silver ADCN lamp and three times (!) silver at Eurobest.
