Two New Cogs In The W&K Machine

Tony Davidson and Kim Papworth are stoked. According to The Guardian, the ECDs at W&K/London just made partner.
“If you want to be a partner at W&K you’ve got to be some kind of saint and some kind of crazy,” said Dan Wieden. “No one exemplifies that more profoundly than Tony and Kim. They have raised the bar, broken rules, lifted hearts and shocked the world.”
It’s the first time Wieden named a partner outside of the Portland headquarters. Dave Luhr, worldwide chief operating officer at W&K, said “we are increasingly becoming a global operation and it is a good time for new partners to tap into creative ideas.”
The last time the agency added a partner was 1996.
