Lau Leaving Ogilvy NY

Nearly five years to the day that it was announced he was joining Ogilvy’s New York HQ from AKQA, we’ve received word that Adam Lau, group creative director/copywriter on the IBM account, is leaving the agency. We haven’t been told why or when Lau is exactly leaving or where he’s headed to next, but during his 20-year ad career, he’s served as a CW at Saatchi & Saatchi, had a five-year stint at McCann Erickson as GCD and worked as a CD/copywriter at the aforementioned AKQA for same amount of time. Some of Lau’s more notable projects in the past few years include the Sprite Lebron 23:23 mix contest while at AKQA and the “color sensitive” billboard for IBM.
