Following the appointment of Nik Studzinki, Sam Walker and Joe De Souza, Karmarama’s Group ECDs set to leave.
Walker and De Souza joined Karmarama in 2010 and were subsequently made Partners and Group ECDs with responsibility for the group’s entire creative output alongside fellow Group ECD, Caitlin Ryan.
During their tenure they won significant business and created successful campaigns for a number of clients, including Clydesdale Bank, Plusnet, Costa, Virgin Active and the BBC. In 2014 the ‘God Only Knows’ film they made to launch BBC Music was voted Marketing magazine’s campaign of the year.
Their exit comes after the appointment of Nik Studzinski as Chief Creative Officer.
Walker said, “We’re extremely proud of what we’ve achieved at Karmarama over the past five years. We’ve done some of our best work here and have helped grow the company from a 60-person ad agency to the 300-strong, progressive and multidisciplinary business it is now. We wish them every success in the future.”
Ben Bilboul said “Sam & Joe are hugely talented and fantastically hard working. I’d like to thank them for all the late nights, the long weekends and last, but not least, their exceptional work.”
