“Jason and Danny have proven to be fearless proponents of transformative creativity,” said Luis Casamayor. “Bringing in senior creative leadership that understands the importance of meaningful, culturally relevant work was paramount,” added Casamayor.
During their more than 15 years of industry experience, Wolske and Alvarez have played a pivotal role in winning new business as well as building and maintaining client relationships. Most recently serving as Group Creative Directors at DAVID Miami, the agency won over 25 global advertising awards for top brands, including Burger King, where their work contributed to earning the company the first-ever Cannes Lions Creative Brand of the Year, in June 2019. Previously, they each worked at several different agencies, including Crispin, Porter + Bogusky, Wieden+Kennedy, Deutsch, BBDO, and TBWA\Chiat\Day.
“With Jason and Danny joining the family, we will continue to elevate the top-level creative product that both our clients and the industry have come to expect from us,” said Jorge A. Plasencia, Co-Founder, Chairman and CEO, Republica Havas. “They will be a great addition to Republica Havas and to our executive leadership team,” he added.
“Having Republica as part of the Havas family over this past year has been game-changing. Their addition has positively impacted our network and clients by providing creative strategy that reflects the colorful and diverse fabric of America,” shared Paul Marobella, Chairman and CEO of Havas Creative North America. “From these significant executive creative hires who will immediately enhance Republica Havas’ creative content to executing more impactful integrations throughout the network — including Universal Music Group and Vivendi — I’m excited by what’s to come,” he added.
“Republica Havas is already an amazing place; we can’t wait to amplify pretty much every aspect of this incredible agency,” said Jason Wolske, Executive Creative Director, Republica Havas. “We’ve long admired Republica and are thrilled to join the family,” added Wolske.
“The fact that Jorge and Luis are both also from Miami and have built such a great agency from scratch is really inspiring,” added Danny Alvarez, Executive Creative Director, Republica Havas. “We’re also excited to collaborate with Havas and Vivendi. This is only the beginning,” he said.
