by MarkLives (@marklives) Ahmed Tilly, the co-founder of iconic South African agency, Black River FC, will be joining FCB Joburg as joint chief creative officer, alongside Jonathan Deeb, in November 2016.
FCB Joburg has more than doubled in size over the past three years, according to group CEO and group CCO, Brett Morris: “In light of FCB Joburg’s growth, Jonathan has been looking for a partner to share the creative leadership with him and continue producing iconic South African work that builds South Africa’s favourite brands with value, scalability, and real integration. We couldn’t ask for a better creative talent than Ahmed to help us on that journey.
“This formidable new partnership will be responsible for the overarching creative vision of the agency, driving transformation and developing young talent. Welcome, Ahmed,” says Morris.
