Bob Greenberg replaces Bob Scarpelli As Titanium And Integrated Jury President.
Bob Greenberg, Chairman, CEO and Global Chief Creative Officer of R/GA, takes over from Bob Scarpelli, DDB Worldwide’s Chairman and Chief Creative Officer, who contracted an infection and is recovering.
Bob Greenberg has been a pioneer in the advertising and communications industry for over three decades.
R/GA is one of the world’s most influential advertising agencies, emphasising the importance of integrated strategies, creative excellence and innovative technology. Bob and his brother Richard founded R/Greenberg Associates in 1977 with the idea of creating a company that values design, while focusing on developing leading-edge motion graphics and live-action film and video production. The company created groundbreaking visual effects for movies, including Alien, Predator, Seven and Zelig. R/GA’s body of work spans 400 feature films and 4,000 television commercials.
Bob has won many awards for creativity including the Academy Award, GRANDY at the ANDY Awards, a D&AD Black Pencil, a Cyber Lion Grand Prix and Titanium Lions at
Cannes. Among his most notable awards are the 2007 BDA Lifetime Achievement Award, Clio Lifetime Achievement Award in 2006, Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award for
Communications in 2003 that honours the best in American design, and the Chrysler Design Award for Innovation in Design. He was also the 2004 Cyber Lions Jury
President and was a member of the 2005 Titanium Lions Jury.
We are obviously very sorry that Bob Scarpelli – a great friend of many in this industry and the man who has presided over some of the most innovative work in our
business – cannot travel to Cannes to be with us this year, and we wish him all the best. We are delighted, though, that Bob Greenberg will be joining us. With his extraordinary creative pedigree and experience across many channels of communication, he will be an excellent leader for the world-class Titanium and Integrated Jury.
CEO of the Festival.
