After a series of new business wins and growth from existing clients, including Tim Hortons, Betadine, Michelle’s RawFoodz and Consonant Skin Care, Zulu Alpha Kilo has bolstered its creative leadership by bringing on two new Creative Directors and promoting two others to Associate Creative Director.
Irfan Khan and Susie Lee have joined Zulu from BBDO and J. Walter respectively, while current staffers Michael Siegers and Jacob Gawrysiak have been promoted to ACDs.
Throughout his career, Khan has championed and developed breakthrough work to help build both local and international brands. Khan’s work has earned him global recognition from shows such as Cannes, the One Show, D&AD and Communication Arts. In fact, Kahn worked with Zak Mroueh previously when the Zulu founder was CCO of Taxi Canada. During the time they worked together, Khan ranked in the top ten copywriters in the world after being the writer on the globally recognized Viagra Bleep campaign which won Cannes Gold and One Show Gold, going on to became one of the most awarded campaigns in the world that year. He has worked on such other notable brands as Visa, Telus, Canadian Tire, and Nike.
Lee joins Zulu following a stint at J. Walter Thompson. She has worked at a number of prominent agencies including Juniper Park/TBWA, EURO TSCG and Ogilvy & Mather. During her career, Lee’s clients have included Nissan, VISA, Nestea, Kraft, Unilever, and HSBC. She helped create the award-winning Conquer All Conditions campaign for Nissan while at TBWA, and received accolades for that campaign from the Effies, Cassies, ADCCs, Marketing Awards, Applied Arts and Communication Arts. The campaign has won numerous Gold medals.
“Irfan and Suzie are top notch creatives and leaders. We’re very fortunate to have them join at such an exciting time at the agency. We’re surrounding them with some great new talent,” said Zulu’s Chief Creative Officer & CEO Zak Mroueh
In addition, Zulu also recently welcomed the creative teams of Vinay Parmar/ Kevin Sato from DentsuBos, Julia Forrest/Sarah Quinto from Juniper/TBWA, Adam Tuck/Darren Marranca from Cheil, designer Gala Tanaskovic from The Drake, and ACD Dan Cummings from Cundari.
