Whittier Takes ECD Job at R/GA

After spending the last year as integrated creative director on Land Rover at Y&R New York, Steve Whittier has headed to R/GA to serve as an ECD on Nike. While he was based in Y&R’s New York office during his yearlong stint, Whittier worked with the London branch as well on global Land Rover launched as well as with other clients such as GE and Airwalk.

Prior to Y&R, Whittier spent over 11 years at Factory Design Labs out of Denver, where he last served as VP/creative director and worked on accounts ranging from Audi to The North Face. During his career, R/GA’s new ECD hire spent time as an art director at the likes of Lowe and McCann and had a spell as a creative director at Leo Burnett’s office in the Ukraine during the ’90s.
