JWT North Asia Executive Creative Director Yang Yeo has promoted GyooYong Oh to Chief Creative Officer of JWT Korea, rounding out the agency’s new leadership team.
Oh will work in partnership with Junghwan Kim, who was promoted to role of Managing Director of JWT Korea in April, to strengthen the agency’s new and existing capabilities, create a stimulating environment for staff and clients and product engaging, effective creative work.
Oh, who joined JWT in 2008 as executive creative director, has created campaigns for a range of blue chip companies, including AIA Insurance, Korea Tobacco, Samsung, Hyundai and Kia Motors.

It’s a well-deserved promotion,” said Yeo.
Prior to joining JWT, Oh worked at Innocean, Ablea, Diamond and Cheil Communications in Korea. He holds a Journalism degree from Yonsei University.
“GyooYong has given so much inspiration to the staff over the last few years, and I am sure that he will take his role as a mentor and guide to the creative team to the next level in his new position as CCO,” said Kim.
