He is Chairman of the European Creative Board and currently an active member of Grey´s Global Creative Board. In 2012, Maruri won the first Cannes Lion for Ecuador. Under his leadership, Maruri Grey has been awarded as Ecuadorian Agency of the Year more than 10 times, including 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2018. Eduardo together with his teams in Ecuador and later in Latin America, have accumulated over 100 Cannes Lions in the past seven years, including 2 Grand Prix.

Javier Campopiano, one of the world's most accomplished creative leaders, has joined Grey as Chief Creative Officer, Grey Europe & Global Clients. In this new position, he will oversee creative development on key global accounts, help them seize new growth opportunities and enhance Grey Europe's creative product and talent.
Javier joins Grey from FCB Mexico where he has served most recently as Partner and Chief Creative Officer after more than four years at Saatchi & Saatchi. During his tenure as Chief Creative Officer, he transformed the creative reputation of that agency's flagship New York office.
He received global notoriety for the "It's a Tide Ad" campaign, the gaggle of faux ads that hijacked the 2018 Super Bowl and swept the award shows, winning a Titanium Lion and the 2019 Grand Effie, among others. Critics hailed its humor, flawless craft and clever, classic problem-solving marketing.
During his career, Campopiano has brought his unique talents to build giant global brands for giant global networks. He began his career as an intern at Ogilvy Argentina and went on to become Regional Creative Director in Latin America for Ogilvy, Saatchi & Saatchi and FCB before becoming a Partner and Chief Creative Officer of FCB New York. The proud recipient of 49 Cannes Lions and a Black Pencil, he has won every top international creative honor.
Ian joined Grey as the EMEA CFO in September 2012 and has helped the regional team in re-organising and restructuring our operations across the network. He came from FCB where for four years he was the CFO for their EME region.
Ian believes to perform effectively it is the duty of the finance function not to just process and report on but to also understand the business and be thoroughly involved in how it operates. Ian has crossed the divide of finance and operations as he has also worked as the COO for Wunderman EMEA and as acting MD for Wunderman UK during a management transition. During that time he negotiated global contracts with Ford and Danone and merged four Wunderman operations into the largest relationship marketing Agency in the UK.
Ian worked for the Y&R Group for eleven years primarily at Wunderman where he was CFO for the UK and CFO for the Ford relationship in EMEA. Prior to that he worked with PriceWaterhouseCoopers in Brazil for three years after qualifying as an ACA in London in 1989.
Sjoerd started at Grey in March 2014, speaks 5 languages and heads up HR across Europe for Grey. He originates from Canada with a detour through Amsterdam for the past twenty years where he had the opportunity to lead HR and Operations for Sid Lee as part of its original plan to set up a global advertising network servicing Adidas, Dell, Cirque de Soleil and Absolute. The shift in his career to advertising happened through an opportunity unlocked by Sid Lee in Montreal to lead a four language production project of a Financial Times Press book titled Conversational Capital.
Prior to that he was connected to both communication, strategic and general management roles in food retailing. Before that he completed an apprenticeship as a chef where he believes he received the best opportunity ever to learn project management. Getting 100 lunches out in 40 minutes requires significant planning and multi-tasking skills. Get it wrong and it's a disaster. Get it right and you are given a pass to come back the next day.
Currently at Grey he is responsible for raising the profile of talent within the region. This means working closely with the HR specialists, CEOs and CFOs to identify Talent and build plans to develop and engage them. The hallmarks of this initiative are the cultural icons of Open and Long as much as they are Famously Effective. Our culture is how we relate, how we deliver, how we serve, how we work, how we feedback and how we communicate with each other everyday
