JeremyCraigen-thumb-200x210-112522.jpgAfter 25 years, Jeremy Craigen is set to leave DDB to pursue new opportunities.

Craigen joined DDB in 1990 as a junior copywriter and rose steadily through the ranks. In 2005, he was appointed executive creative director. In 2012, he was appointed to the role of global ECD for Volkswagen. In addition, he has served as the chair of DDB's European creative council since 2011 and as a global executive committee member since 2012.

Says Craigen: "Back in 1990, I joined what I believed to be the best agency in the world, BMP DDB Needham. Now, just shy of 25 years later, I find myself leaving what I believe to be the best agency in the world, adam&eveDDB. I've had an incredible time here, worked with some of the nicest, funniest most talented people in the business. But now it is time to go and find some exciting new challenges outside of the world of Paddington."
Under Craigen's creative leadership, DDB London consistently topped the Gunn Report as the agency dominated local and international award shows.
 
Says Amir Kassaei, chief creative officer, DDB Worldwide: "Jeremy is one of the great creative leaders in our industry. I want to thank him for all the great things he did for DDB and our clients and wish him the very best in all his future endeavors."
