ECD Wilmont leaves Cheil after four years

One of London’s more interesting creative billets has become available – executive creative director of Korean-owned marcoms company Cheil.

Wilmont says: “Cheil has changed from a 60 person studio, to a 200 person creative company in the past four years. It’s been an exhilarating ride, but it’s now time for someone else to continue the journey.”

Cheil UK VP and COO Matt Pye says: “Logan has been an integral part of the management team defining a new creative strategy, building an award winning team and supporting the next phase in Cheil’s development. We respect Logan’s decision to move on to other opportunities and we would like to thank him for his tireless efforts and wish him the very best in the future. We are now looking for his replacement.”

You never quite know with these things. But Wilmont has done a good job (and, probably, quite a knackering one) to help establish Cheil as more than just an in-house agency for Samsung (which, officially at least, it no longer is).

Cheil just might be in the market for one of the many new London would-be hot shops which have opened over the last couple of years.
