180 has appointed Mike Harris as its new global chief strategy officer, overlooking its Amsterdam and LA offices. He will drive new business growth and tackle high-level strategic opportunities for 180’s clients.

Before 180 Harris worked at Deluxe Entertainment, DDB California (where he was president and CEO), twofiteenmccann, TBWA/Chiat/Day, among other agencies. He has won global Effies and Cannes Grand Prix and has a campaign in the Clio Hall of Fame.

Harris about 180: “They know who they are and what they stand for, and I have always admired the work that 180 does and the agency’s people and culture. I’ve wanted to be part of that for a long time. I’m beyond excited to help Mike (Allen, CEO), Chris (Mendola, Founder/Chairman), William (Gelner, CEO LA) and Al (Moseley, President and CCO) take 180 to the next level.

Recently the agency also hired the high-profile team Dave Canning and Dan Treicel from the US, so it looks like the agency is back on track.
