Juniper Park\TBWA is continuing to grow with numerous hires across its departments in recent months.
Leading the hires are Lisa Wall and Adam Lang, two new account leads who both join as VP and group account director.
Wall is rejoining the TBWA family, having previously spent two years at the agency. Since then, she has had senior account roles at BBDO and AKQA, and was most recently group director of client engagement at Razorfish. Joining in November, Wall will be leading the agency’s Capital Group U.S. account.
Lang joined the agency in December after a year as group account director at DDB, working on the Volkswagen account. He also has experience at Cundari, Zulu Alpha Kilo and BBDO, working on brands including Audi, BMW, Cineplex and Mercedes-Benz. Lang, keeping with his automotive experience, will be leading the Nissan and Petro Canada accounts.
The Nissan account was previously led by Calvin Daniels, who left the agency in the fall to join Commonwealth\McCann.
Both Wall and Lang will work with Shelly-Ann Scott, who remains VP and group account director on the agency’s CIBC account. Adrian Goodgoll, who joined the agency at the end of 2015, has also been promoted to group account director, working on the Canadian Gatorade, U.S. Miller Lite and global EOS accounts.
