Joanna Biernacka, Maciej Kozina and Bart Biały have been promoted to the positions of deputy creative directors at Isobar Polska. Yuri Drabent is leaving the company.
The Isobar agency owned by Dentsu Aegis Network Polska has established the positions of deputy creative directors. The newly created positions were filled by experienced creative staff: Joanna Biernacka, Maciek Kozina and Bart Biały, who up to this point have held the titles of creative group heads. The agency also announced the departure of Yuri Drabent, who for the past year and a half served as creative director.
The last few years at Dentsu Aegis Network Polska, first as the creative director of Lubię to, and then of Isobar, I had a great time. I am leaving because work in advertising no longer gives me pleasure. And for me, work without pleasure does not make sense. I leave a vast speeding ship in very capable hands of Joanna, Bart and Maciek, and I am off to another adventure, says Drabent.
The new creative management team includes previous creative group heads, Joanna Biernacka, Maciej Kozina and Bart Biały. Previously, they managed the department’s creative teams. In new positions they will be responsible for the entire creative process of Isobar projects. They will also be responsible for developing the competence of creative teams and supporting new business operations.
Working with Yuri was a great pleasure for all of us. His enthusiasm made dealing with challenges, of which there are plenty in our industry, much easier. Everyone at Isobar wishes him well in his future professional endeavours. Joanna, Bart and Maciek are very experienced creative individuals, recognised at national and international festivals. They are an undeniable asset in that their ideas respond to the business needs of our customers, and that they are very familiar with our company where they are all in management positions, says Artur Manista, Isobar VP Business Development.
