Martin Wright, a former executive creative director of Ogilvy Group Ireland, has been named ECD of Euro RSCG.
A two-time president of Ireland’s Institute of Creative Advertising & Design and the founder of independent creative network Gospeltm, Wright replaces Neeraj Sabharwal as executive creative director for the UAE. The appointment forms part of the expansion and revamping of Euro RSCG’s regional offering, with the agency moving into new offices in Dubai’s Knowledge Village and hiring new creative teams.
His move to Dubai represents the second time Wright has worked in the Middle East, having taken on the position of creative director of MEANS (Middle East Advertising Network Services) in Beirut in 1977. He later moved to Kuwait before returning to Ireland in 1979. Last year, Wright was handed a lifetime award for his outstanding contribution to the Institute of Creative Advertising & Design.
