Saatchi & Saatchi Puts Creativity at the Top in Third German Office

Frankfurt - Saatchi & Saatchi has announced it will open a Berlin office in Germany this April, the third in their German operation which currently includes Frankfurt and Dusseldorf. The new office will be lead by Executive Creative Director Oliver Kapusta (pictured) and Saatchi & Saatchi Germany's current Chief Operating Officer Géza Unbehagen, who will also continue his responsibilities with the Agency's Frankfurt office.

A highly decorated creative, Kapusta has won over 100 national and international awards including five Cannes Lions during the course of his career. He joins Saatchi & Saatchi from DDB, where he was Group Creative Director. Prior to this he worked for Springer & Jacoby, Jung von Matt and JWT in Germany and has also spent several years working in Prague and Bucharest. His client experience spans Automotive, Telecommunications, Media, Food & Beverage, Technology and Finance sectors.

Michael Samak, CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi Germany and Switzerland said: "We have established an excellent foundation for our Berlin Agency with the appointment of Géza and Oliver. Now with the recent new business successes of our Frankfurt agency it is the perfect time to bring our Berlin plans to life."

Robert Senior, CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi Europe Middle East and Africa said: "Germany is a key focus for us and we are committed to investing in talent and infrastructure to capitalise on the growth of this exciting market. Adding a third office in Berlin is a natural addition for us as it's the epicentre of creativity in Germany."

The Agency will open with an initial team of 20, servicing founding clients Sony Ericsson and Volvo. Saatchi & Saatchi has been handling the German Volvo account since 2008 and is one of the lead agencies for Sony Ericsson across Western Europe.
