Pablo Maldonado
executive creative director
Wunderman Thompson Dubai

Ranked by Lürzer’s Archive as one of the Top 10 CDs in Argentina for the past 3 years, Pablo was appointed Executive Creative Director of WT Dubai, and the youngest-ever member of the Global, EMEA, and MENA Creative Councils, after a successful stint at Wunderman Buenos Aires, and a hero’s journey that has seen him thrive at different agencies, in multi-cultural markets: from Argentina and Mexico to the USA and the UAE.

In his first year as an ECD, WT Dubai achieved more than 60 awards and over 10 new businesses, all this in the midst of the global pandemic and recession of 2020. In previous years, he also helped LatinWorks to place #9 in all USA on Ad Age’s Agency A-List, and DDB #1 Mexican Agency on the Gunn Report 2012, and #2 in 2011.

His works for Bose, Burger King, Philips, Got Milk?, Volkswagen, and Heineken are well-known among people, juries, and the press alike, having been featured in Fast Company, VICE, Contagious, Adweek, The Drum, and Campaign. One of his projects is also part of the permanent collection at the Poster House Museum in NYC.

Awarded in most of the young creative competitions, Pablo also totals over 300 awards, and 5 Grand Prix from some of the most prestigious festivals in the world, including the Effies, Cannes, Clios, LIAs, NYFs, Epicas, amongst many others. Most recently, he was named ‘Remote Worker of the Year’ by Sebastián & Dante, his sons, who finally almost understood what Pablo’s job is all about.
