APAC Chief Creative Officer, B2B

Job Description:

Our story

gyro was born ten and a half years ago with a mission to create ideas that are humanly relevant for B2B brands.

A lot has changed since 2010.

We’ve grown around the world to become the most awarded B2B creative agency, and been listed as Global B2B Agency of the Year six times. We’ve been acquired by dentsu, and now call ourselves Merkle B2B — alongside B2B International, Digital Pi, DWA, and Merkle.

But one thing hasn’t changed for us; we’re still all about developing breakthrough creative ideas — and making sure we’re a place people want to work and invent them. We know this to be true because in 2021 we had more new clients ask us for them than ever before in our history.

And now we’re looking for ways to make those creative ideas matter more, to the people that matter most — by architecting the ultimate B2B customer experience.

So we are looking for a B2B Creative Leader to grow our B2B creative practice across the region. Someone who will set our vision as a group and champion what excellence in B2B communications and experience means — and how it acts as an amplifier for other disciplines like media, technology, and optimisation.

This leader will be working with and guiding Creative Strategists, Designers, and Copywriters; as well as Data Analysts, Media Planners and Developers from other areas of the B2B Group — connecting the dots between disciplines with concepts that bring the customer journey to life in more engaging ways. A mind for the complexities and nuances of communications in the business-to-business sector, and experience in or around multi-disciplinary design would be an advantage.

Ideas never come nicely packaged and ready to go. And while having a process can be useful in agency, it’s generally passion that truly leads the work. And that passion can come from anyone in the team. So we’re looking for someone who knows how to identify where those fledgling ideas lie — and develop them and the people imagining them, in the fullest way.
