AKQA’s Many Bodies


AKQA is busy playing shuffle board wit their managing directors. Guy Wieynk, its British-born New York MD, will head over to the European operation to take the reigns. D.C. office head Jason Whiting will now be heading up New York and the nation’s capital, as well. Additionally, Stuart Sproule now will oversee Shanghai as well as San Francisco as Managing Director West. Spreading it a little thin, no?

The shop has also hired a head of measurement and evaluation. Does that sound like a made-up job title or what? AKQA is looking to expand its offerings in data analytics and statistical analysis, so you know, they needed some kind of figurehead. The head of M&E will be Simon Ricketts of the Guardian News & Media where he was data analysis manager responsible for development and management of the analytics platforms across GNM properties.
