Natalie Lam Takes ECD Post at McCann NY

Two weeks after he enticed former DDB Stockholm partner Andreas Dahlqvist to join up with McCann NY, Linus Karlsson has nabbed another international creative to fill an ECD role in the latter agency’s Big Apple office, namely Natalie Lam. Lam arrives from OgilvyOne, where she served as regional CD, Asia and ECD of the agency’s Shanghai office since 2008 (apparently Lam was also the first female and youngest regional creative director for OgilvyOne Asia).

The Hong Kong native, though, is no stranger to NYC, having worked from 2003-2008 at R/GA, where she was a creative director on the global and U.S. Nike+, NikeiD and Nike running accounts. Karlsson, who as you know is the CCO of McCann NY/London, raves about his newest hire, saying, “Natalie is one of the most inspiring and accomplished creative leaders in the world. Her work is always beautiful, smart and innovative, and she has a unique global perspective and leads with grace.”

In her new post, Lam, who’s earned Grand Prix and Titanium Lions, a D&AD Black Pencil, a One Show Best of Show, etc. during her career (take a guess for what), will across McCann NY accounts and will try to help boost McCann’s digital capabilities.
