BBH Asia Pacific has hired senior copywriter Omar Sotomayor (pictured left) and senior art director (pictured right) Gaston Soto. The duo was most recently with Lapiz Leo Burnett Chicago.
Sotomayor began his advertising career at Havas Peru (formerly Euros) then spent the next four years as a copywriter at both a marketing and start-up digital boutique before moving to Circus Leo Burnett in Peru and then to Lapiz Leo Burnett Chicago as senior copywriter. Soto began as a graphic designer at JWT in Peru, later moving as senior art director to Havas Buenos Aires, and then to Circus Leo Burnett in Peru.
Scott McClelland, ECD, BBH Asia Pacific said:
“If you dig a hole from Singapore, you’ll eventually come out up in Peru. That’s where we went to find these guys. Sotomayor and Soto are true black sheep – they’ve done some great work, are super guys and we’re lucky to have lured them so far from home”
