Executive Creative Director | J.Walter Thompson KSA
Originally from Lebanon, Aoun has been getting under the skin of consumers in the Middle East and North Africa region since reading Graphic Design at the American University of Beirut. He began his career at J. Walter Thompson Dubai, before taking up the challenge of Creative Director with J. Walter Thompson Riyadh, in 2011.
Aoun has worked across diverse business sectors including banking, food and beverage, telecommunications, aviation, luxury and FMCG. In Saudi Arabia - which was widely perceived as an ultra-challenging market in which to work - Aoun discovered that restrictions actually brought a unique set of opportunities for the creative. Campaign by campaign, he has helped J. Walter Thompson spearhead a remarkable new benchmark for the quality of work to expect from the Kingdom; and award by award, he has supported a change in the global industry’s perception of what the Kingdom is capable of achieving.
