- NEW YORK
Mat Bisher has been named chief creative officer of DDB New York. He will work at the network’s flagship office under the leadership of Ari Weiss, DDB global chief creative officer.
Weiss said, “Mat is the type of creative leader who can see the entire board. His influence stretches well beyond the creative department as he inspires teams to find successes on the biggest and hardest problems, as well as on the smallest, unexpected opportunities.”
Bisher holds more than 24 years of creative experience and has held creative leadership positions at agencies such as McCann, BBDO, Deutsch and Burrell. He spent the majority of his career at McCann Worldgroup where he was most recently EVP, executive creative director. There, Bisher produced award-winning campaigns for clients including Microsoft, U.S. Army, Lockheed Martin, Verizon, MasterCard, Chevy, NY Lottery and Qualcomm.
Bisher said, “I couldn’t be more excited to be joining DDB NY as a leader within the incredible, creatively famous DDB global network. I have the greatest respect for Ari and the DDB leadership team. There is a vision in place, and I’m honored to be included in it.”
Bisher’s work has been recognized by Cannes Lions, One Show, D&AD, Webby, Clio, and ANDY. His “Trail View” campaign for Nature Valley was ranked one of the most-awarded digital campaigns in the world. Whether it’s a global powerhouse like Microsoft or an iconic state brand like NY Lottery, creativity is the driving force behind everything he does.
Bisher steps in to lead the NY creative team as Lisa Topol and Derek Barnes leave the agency later this month.
