Renata continued: "Global CCOs Bas Korsten and Daniel Bonner are on a super-fast track to move the industry forward, while Patrick Wisnom at our first meeting said, ‘let’s break all the rules so we can make a difference’."
During Renata’s time as Executive Vice President, Group Creative Director at AREA 23, the agency earned the coveted “Agency of the Year” title at the Clio Health Awards. During 2022, she won the Grand LIA in Art Direction in Pharma & Medical Craft and several golds at the London International Awards, a Cannes Lion, six Clios, four MM+M awards, and four Bricks at the Creative Floor among other shows. She has served as a juror at the London International Awards, Clio Health Awards, The New York Festival Global Awards, Fierce Pharma Marketing Awards, Clube de Criação do Paraná jury (Brazil) and many Luerzer’s Archive student and work selection juries.
“We couldn’t be happier that Renata is joining as Global CCO of Wunderman Thompson Health. She comes from a strong creative agency and background, has a great reputation as a creative leader and has endless energy. Exactly the leader we need to inspire growth for our clients through elevating the teams around the world and the work. There are so many interesting things happening in the health sector, and Wunderman Thompson Health are seeing a lot of creative momentum, so she couldn’t have joined the network at a better time,” said Bas Korsten and Daniel Bonner, Global Chief Creative Officers for Wunderman Thompson.
Renata was part of the 50/50 Initiative from the Art Directors Club whose goal is to bring equal gender representation to the creative industries, specifically in award show juries, speaking engagements and boards of directors. She’ll be surrounded by a powerhouse of female leadership at Wunderman Thompson Health, including Medical Officer, Dania Alarcon, and creative leaders, Tuesday Poliak and Tracy Zuto.
As a Brazilian/American woman with a German brother, one British grandfather, and one Portuguese grandfather, Renata hails from a variety of influences. She believes in breaking barriers and bias, given that human truth resides in the center of different viewpoints.
“I believe in a culture of high energy where everyone is passionate about creativity and pushes to make things happen. I will be encouraging collaboration among brilliant minds, from different areas of expertise to create the unimaginable at Wunderman Thompson Health,” she said.
