Anthony Di Biase, EVP, Executive Creative Director
Anthony brings a depth of experience across multiple disciplines to bear upon the agency’s fully collaborative approach to creative. As Executive Creative Director, he oversees the creative operations for Wunderman Western Region. His role brings a new communications model to the forefront, combining the creative leadership practices of multiple disciplines into one united front. Prior to the development of the current integrated offering, Anthony was Creative Director of Wunderman Southern California, overseeing the Taco Bell and ARCO am/pm work for five years. Before moving to California, Anthony was the Creative Director of Wunderman Toronto, where he developed award-winning work for Sony, Burger King, am/pm, and Ferrero Rocher. Having started his career in general advertising at several of Canada’s top creative boutiques, Anthony has developed a “creative objectivity” which is reflected in the work and the culture of the agency. Building brands and driving consumer action is a tougher challenge than accomplishing either separately. For Anthony and his team, it’s also more rewarding.
