Grupo Gallegos announced the hiring of Andrew Delbridge as the agency’s new Chief Strategy and Engagement Officer, effective November 12, 2012. He will be a member of the agency’s management team, overseeing the planning and engagement departments and reporting to CEO John Gallegos.
Delbridge brings with him over 20 years of experience in the advertising industry. Most recently, he served as McKinney’s Chief Strategy Officer and held senior strategy and management roles at two of Australia / New Zealand’s most progressive and highly awarded agencies: Publicis, Mojo and BBDO Clemenger.
“Andrew’s hire and addition to our team will be a game-changer for not only Grupo Gallegos, but also the advertising industry,” said agency CEO and founder, John Gallegos. “Attracting top talent from the general market like Andrew validates the impact our agency’s continued diversification is having on the broader advertising industry.”
Commenting on the move, Delbridge said, “Given the massive and rapid demographic shift in the make-up of America, John’s vision to transform Grupo Gallegos from being a different kind of ‘Hispanic’ agency into America’s most culturally astute agency, really piqued my interest. Grupo Gallegos is based on the power of ideas, not just the notion that Hispanic and the media they consume are different. They are about finding similarities in a brand that meet a client’s business and marketing objectives.”
