McCann New York has appointed Lea Ladera, formerly a creative director at Saatchi & Saatchi, as its new executive creative director.
Ladera has worked on a variety of popular, big-name campaigns including the American Express campaign featuring Tina Fey, Coca Cola, McDonald’s and Macy’s.
“I’m arriving at McCann at a great time. There’s huge momentum, extraordinary talent and opportunities,” said Ladera.

“Lea is a superb story teller who has helped to creatively define brands and even to integrate them into pop culture,” he said. “She’s a great addition to our team.”
Throughout her career, Ladera has received recognition from almost all major industry awards festivals such as ADC, Effies and Cannes.
