Folker Wrage

Chief Creative Officer

Havas Switzerland

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND // If life is like a box of chocolates, Folker went for the extra-large variety pack. Studied psychology, loved it, didn’t see a professional future in it. Still grateful to have done it. Really helps.

Spent five years working as a flight attendant, back in the days when it was a great way to see the world. Never thought this could be a valuable professional experience, but it sure is. Worked as a music journalist and DJ. Sounds great, but doesn’t help to pay the bills.

Ended up in advertising and found out that this is where he belongs. Worked and lived in Germany (born there), USA, Turkey, Switzerland (now). Happily elevating creativity as CCO at Havas Switzerland. Fierce believer in self-motivation, life long learning, unrestricted curiosity, and asshole free workspaces.

Speaker, writer, teacher, student. Proud alumnus of the Berlin School of Creative Leadership. And still DJing. With a need to practice, though.
