Kate Stanners promoted to Global Chief Creative Officer

After 20 years working for Saatchi & Saatchi, Pablo Del Campo, the worldwide creative director of the network, steps down with immediate effect.

He will be replaced by Kate Stanners, currently chief creative officer at Saatchi & Saatchi, London. Kate will fulfil the role of Global Chief Creative Officer whilst retaining her London role.

Del Campo said: "It has been an enormous privilege for me to have developed so many 'ideas bigger than ads' in a space as inspiring as Saatchi &Saatchi, hand in hand with the most prestigious industry leaders and creative teams. Today, the network holds the highest standards in terms of talent in order to continue the 'hothouse for world-changing ideas.' The decision to leave this 20-year-old adventure has not been easy but the outcome surpassed by far my expectations." "I hope I've honored the brand," he added.

Robert Senior, the worldwide chief executive of Saatchi & Saatchi said: "Pablo has been a source of inspiration, counsel, and delight, not just for me, but for thousands of brilliant creative people within our network. I'm sorry to see him go, but wish him all the best with this new chapter."

On Stanners’ appointment, Senior added: “Kate is a unique talent and a bundle of energy. Over the last couple of years, she has led the transformation of the creative work on some of our biggest global clients, such as Procter & Gamble. Her ability to apply innovative, market-leading creativity to the largest brands in the world will make her the perfect choice of creative leader for our network.

“Our purpose at Saatchi & Saatchi is to create world changing creative ideas that transform our clients’ businesses, brands and reputations. I’m looking forward to Kate leading this drive.”

Stanners said: “I’ve lived, breathed and loved Saatchi & Saatchi for the last 11 years, so the opportunity to take leadership of the creative performance of this great network and drive it to even more success is an exciting, and very personal honour.”
