180LA this week appointed its first executive creative directors.
Rafael Rizuto and Eduardo Marques worked together as creative directors at Pereira O'Dell San Francisco and Ogilvy & Mather Brazil. They will report to William Gelner, chief creative officer of the Santa Monica, Calif., agency.
"Besides being two of the most highly awarded creative directors in the world, they bring an amazing amount of passion and energy to everything they touch," Geiner said in a statement.
"Their unique global perspective will be invaluable to us as more and more of our clients are looking for big, international ideas that travel and get the world talking."
