Droga5 London Names David Kolbusz Chief Creative Officer

Droga5 London today announced the appointment of Chief Creative Officer, David Kolbusz. Kolbusz will start his new role in early November. The new hire follows the recent announcement that Bill Scott has been named CEO of Droga5 London, effective as of November 2. 

David Droga, Creative Chairman and founder of Droga5, said, “David has proven himself over and over to be truly one of the world’s best creative leaders. In fact, I have been trying to find a way to work with David for years, and now, with both David and Bill, I couldn’t be more excited about our future in London and beyond.” 

Kolbusz joins Droga5 from Wieden + Kennedy, New York, where he currently serves as Executive Creative Director. No stranger to the UK market, Kolbusz joined W+K from BBH London in May 2014. At BBH he held the positions of Deputy ECD and Partner, and enjoyed four years with the agency. 

Commenting on the appointment, Kolbusz said, “London is my spiritual home.  The opportunity to head back and work with Bill to build up the Droga5 brand in the UK market proved impossible to pass up.  David, Sarah (Thompson) and everyone I've met from the agency family so far all have big brains and even bigger hearts.  I'm excited for the future and to see what we can do together.”
