The World: Amsterdam - Lietaer takes on Coca-Cola business at W&K

Ryan Lietaer (pictured) is joining Wieden & Kennedy Amsterdam as the group account director on its global Coca-Cola business.

He joins the agency after a ten-year stint at JWT, during which time he has worked in Toronto, New York and, most recently, London (where he was a managing partner).

During his time in New York he was the global account director on Diageo's Smirnoff business.

Tim O'Kennedy, the managing director of Wieden & Kennedy Amsterdam, said: "Ryan comes to us with ringing endorsements from his former colleagues and clients. I think he'll be a hugely positive addition to an already strong team."
