AKQA Finds Lipton Replacements

Once again, we have to give bravos for an agency being proactive. A day after learning that Pierre Lipton announced his departure from said agency, here’s the word from said agency: “AKQA announces that Neil Robinson and Stephen Clements, both respected creative leaders at the agency and in the industry, are taking the roles of joint Executive Creative Directors in San Francisco. Together, they will oversee the more than 100-person creative department at AKQA’s San Francisco office. Both Neil and Stephen will report directly to CCO, Rei Inamoto. ”

Inamoto adds, “Neil and Stephen bring years of leadership in creating some of the most inspiring and impactful work that has earned global recognition.”
