Vince Lagana has returned to Sydney to join Leo Burnett as a creative director after a
year and a half at Goodby, Silverstein and Partners, San Francisco.
Leo Burnett Sydney’s chief creative officer, Andy DiLallo said he was delighted Lagana was joining the ranks.
“He is unquestionably one of the best talents in the industry today,” he said. “I look forward to seeing what surprises he and his new partner, Grant McAloon, will have in store for us. It isn’t often you get to pair such outstanding talents together. As a matter of fact, I think I’m going to start calling them the Avengers. It truly is a great day for Leos.”
Prior to this he spent many years at Saatchi and Saatchi Sydney, becoming one of its most awarded creatives. In 2010-11 alone he won five gold lions at Cannes, three gold at the Spikes and a D&AD pencil for his Toyota Border Security campaign, Saatchi Sydney’s most awarded campaign ever.
Mark Tutssel, chief creative officer of Leo Burnett Worldwide said Lagano was joining at an exciting time.
"Vince's creative pedigree and track record speak for themselves. He is one of the most gifted creatives in the industry.This year Sydney catapulted into the Top 10 Creative Agencies in the World, ranking 7th, and is primed for monumental success in the future."
