Street Talk for December 24, 2021
Jenny Luong

Zulu Alpha Kilo in Toronto has made a number of creative promotions and hires across its various disciplines. The agency has promoted Jenny Luong, Kevin Sato, and Vinay Parmar to serve as creative directors. Luong, who first worked at Zulu in 2013, returned to the agency in the summer of 2020 from DDB Chicago. During this past year, Luong has been behind some award-winning work for Cineplex, the ADCC, and HomeEquity Bank. Sato and Parmar have been at the agency for four years and were promoted to associate creative director in October 2019. They have developed award-winning campaigns for Consonant Skin+Care, Reskinning Queen Street West, Betadine, SingleCut Beersmiths and the HomeEquity Bank web series Catch the Scam. Additionally, Zulu has hired Sylvia Stultz from Edelman as head of talent attraction. Stultz will be responsible for taking the agency’s recruitment to the next level as it continues to put a premium on attracting top talent. Furthermore, Zulu has welcomed Matt Camara as a creative director and Ryan Kukec as an associate creative director. Camara comes over from doug + partners. He has worked on many brands including Go RVing Canada, Coca-Cola, and Audi. His work has been recognized by Cannes, Cassies, Effies and the Canadian Marketing Awards. Kukec joins from Cossette. Notable recent work includes “This is Why” for Sick Kids, “Pizza Patio Furniture” for Boston Pizza, and “Haulers” for No Frills. His work has been awarded at Cannes, D&AD, the Effies, Webby, and more. Also coming aboard Zulu are design director Dejan Djuric after 10 years at Leo Burnett, and sr. designer Jackman Chiu after eight years at Jacknife Design. In strategy, Zulu has brought on board Patrick Henderson from TAXI as director, digital strategy, and Cameron Fleming from Forsman & Bodenfors as strategy director. And there have been four new hires on the production front: Tracy Wightman, most recently at Leo Burnett, joins as sr. digital producer; and Heather Hyland from Community Agency, Jason Pearson, who’d been freelancing for many years, and Andrew Sekine from Postmedia join as integrated producers. Zulu’s in-house content division, Zulubot, added a head of production, hiring Adam Palmer who had been freelancing at the content studio since leaving Popp Rok. This hire will allow Tom Evans, Zulubot’s managing director, to provide even more focus on running and growing the business....
