AdPeople Worldwide Signs Former GSD&M GCD to Lead North American Creative

Steve MillerSteve Miller, former group creative director at Austin’s GSD&M, will now be North American ECD for WPP “network agency” AdPeople Worldwide, handling creative solutions for clients like Dell.

Miller worked with some of GSD&M’s biggest clients (BMW, AT&T, etc.) during his ten years there; he most recently led the creative team at health-care focused agency HCB Health. While Miller will stay in Texas for his new position, he hasn’t always been based in Austin. Before moving south, he spent several years with JWT San Francisco on the Sprint account, so he’s not a new face at the WPP table.

According to the release, Miller is digital to the core: his interest in apps and such led him to create his own agency Super Deluxe, which focuses not on creating apps but providing “branded mobile experiences” to clients.

As ECD, Miller will report to AdPeople’s North American MD Simon Hjorth. The move is a return of sorts; as Miller writes:

“I’m looking forward to getting back to the type of dynamic agency environment I enjoy, serving multiple industries and a variety of clients.”
