MullenLowe Group Philippines has appointed Christian San Jose to the senior role of Head of Creative Technology. Reporting to President & CCO, Leigh Reyes, Christian will be responsible for looking after the agency’s digital businesses as well as mainlining digital deliveries across MullenLowe Philippines and MullenLowe OPEN Philippines. He takes up permanent responsibilities from former Acting Head of Technology, Shiela Tiongco.
A serial entrepreneur and coder, former UX Director, ECD, and award-winning illustrator, Christian joins the agency from leading his own business Create.ph, which was acquired in 2015. Over five years from inception to acquisition, Christian grew Create from a team of two, to a full service agency with 85 employees. Prior to this he held senior positions with digital marketing specialists including HSThree and Jump Digital, driving work for brands and clients such as Kobe Bryant, Kanye West, Usain Bolt, Coca Cola, Unilever and Nike.
Leigh Reyes comments of his appointment: “Technology leads the pace of change in our business. Christian combines an excellent creative and technology skillset with entrepreneurial chops and a hands-on approach to the work. He’ll harness the existing digital expertise within the agency and take it to the next level, which is what our clients need to stay ahead of the curve."
Christian San Jose adds: “I was drawn to the fact that human-centred design and innovation are at the core of the Creative Technology unit at MullenLowe Philippines. What excites me is its culture of openness, and its commitment to building better things for the web and beyond. The agency is already at the forefront of digital, and with its immense growth potential, this role gives me the opportunity to help shape its future.”
MullenLowe Group Philippines has gained an unfair share of attention for their digital work with brands including Wendy's (MullenLowe OPEN), Rexona, Eskinol, and Magnum.
