As Executive Creative Director of R/GA's U.S. offices, Taras Wayner works along side his partner Chloe Gottlieb to direct the many multi disciplinary creative teams towards the creation of breakthrough products, services and communications for brands like Nike, Samsung, Verizon and Beats By Dre.
Taras has always had a deep passion for storytelling and during his time at RGA has been instrumental in developing and shaping new ways to tell a brands story beyond the 30 second spot as well as how a brand's services can impact the way their story is told. In 2015, his commitment to creating the best work in the industry helped him be named one of the most creative people in advertising by Business Insider as well as R/GA being awarded the agency in the year at Cannes.
Prior to RGA, Taras created memorable work for famous brands like Fox, Coca Cola, Samsung and the NFL. His work for the NFL, featuring actor Don Cheadle, created a major shift in how the NFL markets itself and generated record-high ratings leading to the work being named one of the top 20 Super Bowl commercials of all-time by Ad Age. His work for Fox Sports was honored with a Grand Prix at Cannes for film and inclusion in the Clio Hall of Fame.
