Durkan quits The Tribe for FP7 Bahrain

Dubai’s Creative Club chairman Andrew Durkan has quit independent agency The Tribe to become creative director of FP7 Bahrain.

Durkan, who was creative director at The Tribe, fills the position left vacant by the departure of Fadi Yaish, who has moved to Dubai to take on the role of executive creative director. Dubai’s former ECD, Daniel Georr, is now FP7’s chief creative officer for the region.

“Andrew is one of the most respected creatives in the industry and it was natural for FP7 to be interested in such a talent,” said Georr. “Especially in Bahrain where, with the great work that was coming out of the office, nothing less than perfect was acceptable. Andrew is one of the best people for the job, and one of the few who could keep the momentum going and probably do even better.”

Georr added: “With talent such as Andrew, Ahmed Beck and Fadi Yaish, and an army of great creative directors, the FP7 network is growing stronger than ever. And that is part of our strategy – to have the best talent and offices in every market.”

The changes at FP7 are part of a wider restructure of parent company MCN’s senior management, which was implemented in October following a strategic review of the holding group’s entire business.

Razia Essack is to take over as creative director at The Tribe.
