Liam Wielopolski
Chief Creative Officer
DDB South Africa

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA // Having cut his teeth on global brands such as Guinness, Land Rover, Virgin Atlantic Airways and P&G, Liam is always ready to take on the challenge of producing great creative work that delivers.

With a career that has spanned over 20 years at numerous South African hotshops, Ogilvy, The Jupiter Drawing Room and then Y&R, Liam joined DDB 5 years ago as Regional CCO of not only Johannesburg but Africa as well. In 2016 he led DDB to Network of the Year at the African Cristal Awards and was ranked the 2nd most awarded CCO at the Loeries. Both in his own right as an art director and as the lead of several creative departments, he has collected an impressive array of Lions, Pencils and statues from international and local award shows. He’s had the honour of judging  several international festivals such as Cannes, Clios, New York Festivals, AdStars and the Loeries. His work for UNICEF has been exhibited at the V&A Museum of Childhood in London and has a series of posters in the NYC Poster House Museum’s permanent collection.

In his spare time he likes to chase a little white ball with a big stick around beautifully manicured lawns.
