gyro, the global ideas shop, has appointed Drew Meyers as president of gyro San Francisco.
Meyers brings with him a strong blend of client services expertise, technological savvy and proven leadership skills. He leads the office with Executive Creative Director Steffan Postaer, who, along with the rest of the gyro team, has successfully elevated the San Francisco office’s creative output, thinking and culture.
Meyers brings with him over 15 years of experience at leading agencies including Publicis, MRM Worldwide/McCann Worldgroup, Digitas and most recently Organic.
He has led client engagements for numerous global technology brands such as Microsoft, Intel, Google, Brocade, Box and PayPal. Meyers has also applied his client relationship leadership skills to T-Mobile and LG Mobile in telecom; Chevy and Scion in automotive; and more recently to the likes of Nike, Quaker and Nature's Way in the consumer goods space.
Whether it's in the domain of digital, direct or brand work, Meyers' trademark is to take a highly strategic approach to client services and to help inspire and ignite creativity and innovation on behalf of clients.
"The unique gyro culture and their ignition process combine to deliver an incredibly strong and differentiated value proposition for clients and agency talent," said Meyers. "This business is about bringing the best people together to deliver superlative levels of creativity and innovation. Simply put, that's what gyro does — and I couldn't be more excited for the opportunity to build on the impressive momentum that Steffan and the current team have achieved."
"I'm overjoyed welcoming Drew Meyers into our fold," said Postaer. "His pedigree and passion make him a perfect fit when it comes to executing humanly relevant ideas for all of gyro’s clients and the new ones to come. We have much to be excited about in 2013, especially with the addition of our new president."
"Drew is a perfect fit. He has the true talent to inspire and he loves technology" said Christoph Becker, global CEO and chief creative officer, gyro. "He and Steffan will make gyro San Francisco’s star shine even brighter."
