TBWA veteran, Lee Clow, has announced his retirement after a career of five decades with Chiat\Day. He will move into an advisory role.
Entering retirement, TBWA Global Director of Media Arts, Lee Clow, will move into an advisory role as Chairman Emeritus of TBWA\Media Arts Lab, which he founded in 2006 to serve Apple and drive his vision of a brand that impacts culture rather than just makes ads.
He is now on a personal film project to depict some of the most culture-altering advertising in history. Recalling his 50 years at Chiat\Day, the story will focus on the work and people. Also, his involvement with social impact group, For Good, in Los Angeles, will continue on.
His career that started at Chiat\Day spans five decades. He took its audacious style global when he helped lead the merger with TBWA. The move crystallised its reputation as the destination for creative professionals passionate about producing ground-breaking work.
“Lee will always be our creative conscience. He has given so much to our company and to our industry. His challenge to us to disrupt will continue to be our North Star. We all love you, Lee,” said Troy Ruhanen, President and Chief Executive Officer of TBWA\Worldwide.
