Ryan Lietaer is joining the community London as the agency’s managing director. The move reunites him with executive creative director Mark Hunter after they met at Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam 10 years ago. 
 
Lietaer led W+K’s global Coca-Cola business before leaving to become general manager of BBDO Paris where in addition to leading international new business, he spearheaded the global Pepsi and HP accounts. Lietaer then left BBDO to launch his own creative agency Peoplewelike, in 2013 where his clients included LVMH, Suntory Schweppes, Diageo, L’Oreal, Le Coq Sportif and Weight Watchers. 
 
“Ryan has a rare mix of talent and humanity that resonates strongly with our team. He’s a big impact player and someone who has been a part of great creative thinking his whole career,” said Joaquin Mollá, co-founder and co-CCO of the community.
