Yaish and Impact BBDO part company
Posted on December 12, 2017

Fadi Yaish and Impact BBDO are to part ways after four years.

It is not yet known where Yaish is going or who will replace him as regional executive creative director, but both the agency and Yaish confirmed the news. 

Yaish originally joined Impact BBDO in 2013, having previously worked at FP7 and Saatchi & Saatchi. During his time at Impact BBDO he focussed on creating cross-channel campaigns, many of which were awarded globally.

Impact BDDO Dubai was crowned agency of the year at the Dubai Lynx in both 2016 and 2017.  

Both Yaish and Impact BBDO declined to comment at the moment.

UPDATE (Friday, 15 December):

In a related move, Paul Shearer, currently chief creative officer at Memac Ogilvy, is to take on the same role at Impact BBDO from 1 February. 

“I have had an amazing time at Memac Ogilvy,” said Shearer. “With Eddie Moutran’s support we have moved the creative dial way up and only a challenge like BBDO could have tempted me away.”

Shearer joined Memac Ogilvy back in 2014. He has previously worked for the likes of Wieden+Kennedy, BBH and Nitro.
