Robert Shaw West

Chairman / CEO

The Republik


Robert has spent most of his life as an art director for Fortune 500 clients. His trademark is a crisp, distinctive, visual style that sets his work apart from that of his peers. With a keen sense of design and a sharp imagination, Robert’s ideas are regularly translated into executions that are not only brilliant but also highly effective.

In 1995, Robert was voted one of the country’s top ten up-and-coming creative people. Throughout his career, he’s been recognized by the industry’s best advertising shows including the New York Art Director’s Club, the One Show, the Andy’s, the Clio’s... you name it. His work is regularly featured in industry publications like Adweek, Advertising Age, Archive, and CA. But as you get to know Robert, this is the only place you will hear much mention of such accolades. He gets much more excited about the power of advertising that gets noticed and causes people to act.

Robert’s greatest achievement is the defining role he played in developing the vision for The Republik, an agency poised to fundamentally change the business of advertising. As a 100% employee-owned, performance-based international advertising network, The Republik has fundamentally re-engineered the relationships between an agency, its employees and clients. As The Republik’s Chairman and CEO Robert is proud of the tremendous recognition the new company is getting. Fast Company named The Republik a finalist in its 2002 annual listing the top 50 Fast Companies to watch while CMYK magazine called The Republik the new agency model by which all others will be measured.
