Zulu Alpha Kilo has brought on two new creative directors and promoted two others to associate creative director. Irfan Khan and Susie Lee have joined Zulu from BBDO and J. Walter respectively, while current staffers Michael Siegers and Jacob Gawrysiak have been promoted to ACDs.
Throughout his career, Khan has championed and developed breakthrough work to help build both local and international brands.

In fact, Kahn worked with Zak Mroueh previously when the Zulu founder was CCO of Taxi Canada. During the time they worked together, Khan ranked in the top ten copywriters in the world after being the writer on the globally recognized Viagra “Bleep” campaign which won Cannes Gold and One Show Gold, going on to became one of the most awarded campaigns that year. He has worked on such other notable brands as Visa, Telus, Canadian Tire, and Nike.
Lee joins Zulu following a stint at J. Walter Thompson. She has worked at a number of prominent agencies including Juniper Park/TBWA, EURO TSCG and Ogilvy & Mather. During her career, Lee’s clients have included Nissan, VISA, Nestea, Kraft, Unilever, and HSBC. She helped create the award-winning “Conquer All Conditions” campaign for Nissan while at TBWA, and received accolades for that campaign from the Effies, Cassies, ADCCs, Marketing Awards, Applied Arts and Communication Arts. The campaign has won numerous Gold medals.
In addition, Zulu also recently welcomed the creative teams of Vinay Parmar/Kevin Sato from DentsuBos, Julia Forrest/Sarah Quinto from Juniper/TBWA, Adam Tuck/Darren Marranca from Cheil, designer Gala Tanaskovic from The Drake, and ACD Dan Cummings from Cundari.
