Åkestam Holst NoA welcomes Joakim Khoury as Creative Director

September 22

We are happy to welcome Joakim Khoury – a longtime colleague and one of Sweden’s most awarded creators, most recently with two Grand Prix in Eurobest and several Lions in Cannes for, “A hard pill to swallow,” for Swedish pharmacy Apotek Hjärtat – as our new Creative Director.

“I am incredibly excited about spearheading the Nordic region’s strongest creative advertising collective. Everyone working here is extremely competent and talented. Going to the office seeing all the great work being created here is very inspiring. I do not see myself as the classic Creative Director who unanimously will sit at the top and take executive decisions, but more as someone who can help squeeze out 5 percent more from each idea. An important part of the job will of course also be to support our junior talents and give them the best possible conditions to both contribute and learn from the entire collective”, says Joakim Khoury.
