Global creative collective Forsman & Bodenfors has announced that creatives Johan Olivero and Johan Eghammer are joining the agency’s co-headquarters in New York City. Olivero is relocating to New York from Forsman & Bodenfors’ offices in Sweden, while Eghammer returns to F&B after over a year at Crispin Porter + Bogusky Boulder where he served as executive creative director. Both creatives will officially join the agency this summer to further guide its New York creative department alongside Andreas Baumert, Cerra Buckholz, Jordan Chouteau, and Matt Creamer.
Johan Olivero has been one of the leading creatives at Forsman & Bodenfors Sweden for nearly 20 years, helping the once local agency establish itself as one of the very best in the world. As a copywriter by trade, he has won numerous international awards for brands like Volvo, Coop, and the Swedish Alcohol Monopoly. His wins include a Grand Prix and golds at Cannes Lions, a White Pencil at D&AD and golds at the ANDYs, Epica, Eurobest, and the New York Festival awards.
“Having worked closely with Johan Olivero throughout the past year, it’s clear that his unmatched passion for world-class creative work and his thoughtful approach to collaboration make him an exceptional creative, leader, and human being,” said Mike Densmore, CEO of Forsman & Bodenfors New York. “I’m so excited to welcome him and Johan Eghammer to New York and look forward to them creating some famous, award-winning work for our clients.”
“Since last year, I've had several opportunities to work with the team at the New York office, and I really like everyone I’ve met there. I’m especially excited to help foster a way of working that, in our experience in Sweden, can bring out the best in people and generate a lot of great creative work,” said Olivero.
Johan Eghammer is no stranger to Forsman & Bodenfors. Prior to joining CP+B in 2018, he spent 23 years at the creative collective in Sweden and led the agency to a number of accolades, most notably a Grand Prix and two golds from Cannes Lions. He has created award-winning campaigns for brands such as Coop, Volvo, IKEA, Carlsberg, Pernod Ricard, UNICEF, and Visit Sweden. Eghammer also played a vital role in founding Forsman & Bodenfors’ Stockholm office in 2001.
“We could not be happier to welcome Johan Eghammer back to our family at F&B,” said copywriter and global executive chairman Anna Qvennerstedt. “Johan is one of the best in the business—a creative with strategic chops and a unique approach to craft, as well as an all-around great guy. Our entire collective around the globe is lucky to have him back, and I cannot wait to see what he and the team in New York create together.”
“Forsman & Bodenfors’ collaborative way of working has helped build some of the world’s most human and iconic brands. Returning to my roots during such a special time in F&B’s history was an opportunity I could not pass up,” said Eghammer. “There is such great momentum occurring in the New York office, and I cannot wait to start working with the team.”Forsman & Bodenfors New York, Thu, 27 Jun 2019 14:31:57 GMT
