Wieden & Kennedy Amsterdam managing director Tim O’Kennedy is leaving without another job to go to after two years in the role. O’Kennedy is leaving for “personal reasons” and his departure date has yet to be announced.
The former Nike international marketing director has worked for the agency twice, first joining the company as Nike account director for the “Just Do IT” campaign in 1988. He moved to Nike two years later and returned to Wieden & Kenney to take up his current role in 2005.
Since then he has overseen global client wins such as Coca-Cola and Procter & Gamble. Wieden & Kennedy also counts Honda, Nokia and Pizza Hut on its list of clients.
