New ECD joins Draftfcb Johannesburg
Jonathan Deeb, currently Executive Creative Director at Havas Worldwide Johannesburg & Havas Worldwide Digital Johannesburg (the recently rebranded Euro RSCG Group), is to join Draftfcb Johannesburg as ECD from July 15 this year.
In a media statement, Draftfcb South Africa says its Chief Creative Officer, Brett Morris, “plays a major role in directing the group’s Johannesburg agency’s creative product, and he will continue to do so.”
Former Draftfcb Johannesburg ECD Neo Mashigo had left to become co-Executive Creative Director for Ogilvy & Mather Johannesburg in March this year.
Deeb studied at the Red and Yellow School of Logic and Magic under Brian Searle-Tripp before joining The Jupiter Drawing Room Johannesburg. He later joined Black River FC as creative director before moving to Havas in 2011.
Havas will replace Deeb with Eoin Welah as ECD at that agency. Welah is currently the ECD at Leo Burnett Johannesburg. He has worked at Metropolitan Republic, Lowe Bull Johannesburg, Lowe Prague, King James and Leo Burnett Johannesburg, among others.
